The Dying Priest Last Wish-Joke of the Week

Crucifixion Scene-Moriones Festival, 2010 at the Boac River Park, Marinduque, Philippines

A change of subject in this blog to break the monotony. The following joke I reprinted from Sandee's Comedy Plus: Enjoy! Any comments! Would you like to read more jokes in this blog or not?

"The old Priest lay dying in the hospital. For years he had faithfully served the people. He motioned for his nurse to come near.

"Yes, Father?" said the nurse.

"I would really like to see the Prime Minister and Finance Minister before I die," whispered the Priest.

"I'll see what I can do, Father," replied the nurse. The nurse sent the request to the Prime Minister's office and waited for a response. Soon the word arrived that the Prime Minister and Finance Minister, devoted Christians both, were delighted to visit the Priest.

As they went to the hospital, the Prime Minister commented to the Finance Minister, "I don't know why the old Priest wants to see us but it will certainly help our images and might even get us some favorable publicity." The Finance Minister agreed that it was a good thing.

When they arrived at the Priest's room, the Priest took the Prime Minister's hand in his right hand and the Finance Minister's hand in his left. There was silence and a look of serenity on the old Priest's face.

Finally the Prime Minister spoke. "Father, of all the people you could have chosen, why did you choose us to be with you as you near the end?"

The old Priest slowly replied, "I have always tried to pattern my life after our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."

"Amen," said the Prime Minister.

"Amen," said the Finance Minister.

The old Priest continued, "Jesus died between two thieves. I would like to do the same!"

Personal Note: Do you think this joke applies to Filipino politicians? Do you know what our Filipino politicians have been doing with their pork barrel funds for the last decades and even just recently( Fertilizer Scandal)? If you are a Filipino and have not heard of the fertilizer scandal, you must living in another planet!
