Marine Joke

A Marine is traveling home on Christmas leave in his blues and the airline puts him in first class when he checks in.

He boards the plane and sits down next to a Catholic Priest – also traveling in first class.

The stewardess comes over immediately and offers the young Marine a drink. The young Marine asks “ma’am, may I have a glass of scotch… Read More?” The flight attendant replies with a smile “absolutely, sir.”

She looks at the Priest and says “father would you like something to drink as well.” Very uncharacteristically for a catholic priest, he replies with a scowl “young lady, I would rather be r*ped by brazen whores than to have a drop of liquor touch these lips!”

The Marine quickly raises a finger and says “Ma’am, I’m sorry, I’d like to change my order; I didn’t realize I had that kind of a choice!”

Semper Fidelis.

    Better than jokes, read “SH*TBIRD! How I Learned To Love The Corps” Very funny, true boot camp experiences as told by the Marines who experienced them. Better yet, this author, attended the 73rd “Reunion of Honor” on Iwo Jima, March 23rd. While there I gathered up a quantity of volcanic sand from the invasion beach which I am now passing along with each copy of the book sold through me.

    Having known quite a few Catholic priests I cannot imagine one turning down a drink, free or otherwise. Likewise, I cannot imagine a Marine not opting for the appetizers …
