|A priest is walking along when he sees a group of four young boys ...
...throwing a baseball. They're swearing and shouting, and the priest thinks 'I bet they know nothing of Jesus and his love. What a shame. Still...'
He goes over to them and says, "Excuse me, boys, but I've got a couple of bucks here for the one who can give me the answer to a question. You on?"
" Sure," they chorus, "What's the question, mister?"
"Who do you think was the greatest man to have ever lived? Simple eh?"
They became silent as they thought, then the youngest said "Sure, it has to have been Saint Patrick?"
"Nice try, son" said the priest, "but sorry, not the one I'm thinking of."
The next one says "Well then, it has to be Babe Ruth. Me Dad reckons he was the greatest."
"Sorry, son, the greatest baseballer, not the greatest man."
"Well", the next one says, "I'll vote for Davey Crockett. We learnt about him is school.'
"Yes, great, but not the greatest." Turning to the last boy he says, "Well, what about you. What do you say?"
"It vas Jesus Christ."
"Hey. Right on! Great. Here's the money." He hands it over, and is about to walk away, a little happier than he'd been, when he suddenly turns round and says to the last boy "Excuse me, son, but anen't you Jewish?"
" Sure," he replies
"So how come you said what you said?"
"Well, of course in my heart of hearts I know it vas Moses - but business is business."
