"Bless me Father, for I have sinned. I have been with a loose girl".
The priest asks, "Is that you, little Tommy Funachelli?"
"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, Tommy, 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 Volpe?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Maria Piriano?"
"My lips are sealed."
"Was it Rosa Di Angelo, then?"
"Please, Father, I cannot tell you."
The priest sighs in frustration. "You're very tight lipped, Tommy Funachelli, and I admire that. But you've sinned and have to atone. You cannot be an altar boy now for 4 months. Now you go and behave yourself."
Tommy walks back to his pew, and his friend Nino slides over and whispers,
"What'd you get?"
"4 months vacation and five good leads......."
