A priest, in urgent need to use the bathroom, walks into a local bar. The bar is jumping with loud music and lively conversation, but every few minutes the lights abruptly go off. Every time the lights go off, the bar crowd bursts into loud whoops and applause, but when they see the priest enter the bar, the place becomes absolutely quiet.
The priest walks over to the bartender and asks, “Can you please tell me where your bathroom is?”
“Sure, but I have to tell you, father, there’s a statue of a naked woman in it and she is wearing only a fig leaf.”
“No problem, I’ll just avert my eyes, then,” Said the priest.
The bartender then shows the priest to the far side of the bar where the bathroom is located. After a short while, the priest comes out of the bathroom and the bar crowd pauses only long enough to give him a rousing cheer. Perplexed he goes over to the bartender and asks, I’m puzzled. Why did they cheer for me as I came out of the bathroom just now?”
“Well, father, it’s because your curiosity has made you human and likeable, just like us,” said the bartender. “May I pour you a drink?”
“No thanks you, but, I’m still puzzled,” said the priest.
“You see, father,” chuckles the bartender, “every time somebody moves the fig leaf on the naked woman statue, the bar lights go off. Now, what do you say to that drink?”
