The Alter Boy

Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl.’

The priest asks ‘Is that you, little Joey Pagano?’

‘Yes Father, it is.’

‘ And who was the girl you were with?’

‘I can’t tell you Father, I don’t want to ruin her reputation.’

‘Well, Joey, I’m sure to find out her name sooner or later so you may as well tell me now. Was it Tina Minetti?’

‘I cannot say.’

‘Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?’

‘I’ll never tell.’

‘Was it Nina Capelli?’

‘I’m sorry, but I cannot name her.’

‘Was it Cathy Piriano?’

‘My lips are sealed.’

‘Was it Rosa DiAngelo, then?’

‘Please Father, I cannot tell you.’

The priest sighs in frustration. ‘You’re very tight lipped, and I admire that. But you’ve sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for four months. Now you go and behave yourself.’

Joey walks back to his pew, and his friend Franco slides over and whispers ‘What’d you get ?’

‘Four months vacation and five good leads……’
