A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest sitting next to her, “Father, may I ask you for a favour?” “Of course. What can I do for you?”

“Well, I bought an expensive woman’s electronic hair dryer for my mother’s birthday. It is unopened but well over the Customs’ limit.And I’m afraid they’ll confiscate it. Could you carry it through the Customs for me? Under your robes perhaps?”

“I would love to help you, my dear, but I must warn you: I will not lie.” “With your honest face, Father, no one will ever question you.” When they got to the Customs, she let the priest go ahead of her.

The Customs officer asked, “Father, do you have anything to declare?”

“From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare.”

The officer thought this answer rather strange, so he continued to ask, “And what do you have to declare from your waist down to the floor?”

“I have a marvellous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but which is, to date, unused.”

Roaring with laughter, the official said, “Go ahead, Father – “Next!”
