“A Quick Thinking Priest and Customs Officer!”

“A Quick Thinking Priest and Customs Officer!”



A female college student coming back from Europe is sitting next to a priest.

She: "Excuse me could you do me a favor? I used the very last of my vacation money to buy an expensive artisanal razor. It's so beautiful it's a piece of sculpture. I have no money to pay any duty fees when we land. Could you bring it through customs for me?"

Father: "Sure but as priest I cannot lie about it." and then puts the razor in a pocket of his robe.

Upon arriving the Customs Officer asked, "Do you have anything to declare?"

Father: "From the top of my head to waist I have nothing to declare."

Customs Officer: "That's an odd answer. Do you have anything BELOW your waist you would like to declare?"

Priest: "Yes I have something that was created by a master, held by the hand, made for a woman and has never been used."

Customs Officer: "Welcome to the United States Father."

Good morning Joe,

Isn't it amazing how the use of proper punctuation and wording can make something seem totally different than it is?

Keep smiling, it is the only way to be!

Thank you for the laugh!

Nothing that priest said was wrong, but it would have raised a few eyebrows for sure
