A priest decides to take a walk to the pier near his church.  He looks
around and finally stops to watch a fisherman load his boat.  The
fisherman notices the priest looking on so he decides to ask the priest
if he'd like to join him for a couple of hours.  The priest agrees.
The fisherman asks if the priest has ever fished before, to which the
priest answers no.  He baits the hook and says "Give it a shot, Father."  

After a few minutes, the priest hooks a big fish and struggles to get  
it in the boat.  The fisherman says, "Whoa man...look at that big 

Startled, the priest says, "Uh, sir, can you please mind your language?"

The fisherman, thinking very quickly on his feet, says, "I'm sorry, 
Father, but that's what this type of fish is's a sonofabitch."

Embarassed, the priest says, "Oh, I'm sorry,  I didn't know."

After the little fishing trip was over, the priest brings the fish to
the church and stops the Bishop.  "Look at this big sonofabitch!"

"Mind your language, Father, this is a house of God." said the

"No sir, you don't understand.  That's what the fish is called,
and I caught it.  I caught this sonofabitch!"

The Bishop says, " know, I could clean this sonofabitch 
and we could have it for dinner."

So the Bishop cleans the fish and takes it to the head mother saying,
"Reverand Mother, could you cook this sonofabitch for dinner tonight?"

"Your emminence, that language is terrible!"

"No, Sister, that's what this fish is called, a sonofabitch"

"Oh... okay, I'll be happy to cook that sonofabitch tonight."

That night the Pope stops by for dinner.  He thinks the fish is
fabulous and asks, "Where did you fine people find this fish?"

The priest says, "I caught the sonofabitch."

Then the Bishop says, "...and I cleaned the sonofabitch."

Then the Reverand Mother says, "...and I cooked the sonofabitch."

The pope stares at them for a minute with a steely gaze, takes off his
hat, leans back in his chair, puts his feet up on the table and says,
"You know, you fuckers are alright."
