Heard this joke on my car radio yesterday
« on: June 13, 2009, 02:04:40 PM »
Interesting... what shall we say about the Orthodox?

The joke goes like this:

A sinner dies and goes to hell. The devil greets his there and says, "I will show you around."

"This," - the devil says, "is our first circle - it's for Catholics who ate meat on Friday.

"And this is our second, harsher, circle - for Presbyterians who laughed and told jokes.

"And this is a yet deeper and grimmer circle, for Baptists who danced and drank wine.

"And now the deepest and the darkest one: for Episcopalians who used a wrong fork during a formal dinner."

Um, how about - for Orthodox that had pews? :angel:

This reminded me of a joke we have in Greece.
-Why is Hades black?
-Because it's full of priests.

No offence, fathers. :)
