I was sent this joke to give you a laugh for the weekend:

An Irishman goes into the confessional box after years of being
away from the Church.

He is amazed to find a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.
On the other wall is a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.

Then the priest comes  in.

Excitedly, the Irishman begins…..”Father, forgive me, for it’s
been a very long time since I’ve been to confession, but I must first admit
that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be.”

The priest replies, “Get out. You’re on my side.”

Remember my ads from 20 years ago? Anne Moloney has helped me to go one better. She gave me a panto  programme from 40 years ago and I will drip feed the ads to you over the next few days.
