Catholic One-Upmanship

Four Catholic mothers are sitting around bragging about their sons. The first mother says, "My son is a monsignor, and when he walks in the room, people greet him by saying 'Good morning, monsignor'."

The second mother says, "Well, my son is a Bishop, and people greet him by saying 'Good morning, your Grace'."

The third mother says, "Well, my son is a Cardinal, and people greet him by saying 'Good morning, your Eminence"."

The three women look over at the fourth, knowing her son hadn't joined the priesthood, and wondering how she might try to top them.

After a moment the fourth mother says, "My son is six feet, ten inches tall and is 300 pounds of pure muscle. When he walks in the room, people greet him by saying 'Oh... my... God!"
