A Stab at Humour!
The priest asks, "Is that you, little Joey Pagano?"
"Yes, Father, it is."
"And who was the girl you were with?"
"I can't tell you, Father. I don't want to ruin her reputation."

"I cannot say."
"Was it Teresa Mazzarelli?"
"I'll never tell."
"Was it Nina Capelli?"
"I'm sorry, but I cannot name her."
"Was it Cathy Piriano?"

Women did all the work, Medicine man give treatment free. Indian man spend all day hunting and fishing; all night, having sex."
Then the chief leaned back and smiled, "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve system like that."
