An Irishman goes into the confessional box after years of being away from the Church.
As he steps in, he's struck dumb by what he sees.
On one side, there's a fully equipped bar with Guinness on tap.
On the other wall holds a dazzling array of the finest cigars and chocolates.
Then he hears the door on the other side open and the priest comes in.
"Father, forgive me," he says, "for it's been a very long time since I've been to confession."
"But," he continues before the priest can say a word, "I must first admit that the confessional box is much more inviting than it used to be!"
"Get out you fool!" the priest hisses. "You're on my side!"
