Morning Coffee in Rome

Four Catholic men and a Catholic woman were having coffee in St. Peter’s Square.  The first man tells his friends, “My son is a priest.  When he walks into a room, everyone call him “Father”.  The second man chirps, “My son is a Bishop.  When he walks into a room, people call him “Your Grace”.  The third gent says, My son is a Cardinal.  When he enters a room everyone bows their head and says “Your Eminence”.  The fourth man say very proudly, “My son is the Pope.  When he walks into a room people call him “Your Holiness”.

Since the lone Catholic woman was sipping her coffee in silence, the four men gave her a subtle, “Well … ?”  She proudly replied, “I have a daughter, she’s beautiful, tall, slim, 38D breasts, 24″ waist, 36” hips.  When she walks into the room, everyone says, “Jesus”.

Jewish Divorce

A Jewish daughter says to her mother, “I’m divorcing Irv.  All he wants is sex, sex and more sex.  My vagina is now the size of a 50-cent piece, when it used to be the size of a nickel.”

Her mother says, “You’re married to a multi-millionaire businessman, you live in an 8 bedroom mansion, you drive a $250,000 Ferrari, you get a $2,000 a week allowance, you take 6 vacations a year.”

“You want to throw all that away . . . over 45 cents?”
