At church, Joe was in charge of taking up the offering. One Sunday after the service, the priest counted the cash and found it was smaller than anticipated. The priest gave Joe a questioning look and told him that it did not seem enough for the size of the congregation.
Joe said that he did not take any of the offering. The priest again questioned him, and again he said that he did not take any of the offering. Finally, the priest said, "Get into the confessional," which Joe did.
The priest asked him if he took any of the offering. Joe said, "I can´t hear you."
Again the priest asked, "Joe, did you take any of the offering?"
Joe answered, "I can´t hear you."
This time the priest yelled, "JOE, DID YOU TAKE ANY OF THE OFFERING?"
Again Joe answered, "I can’t hear you."
Now the priest was so angry he came out of the confessional and said, "Joe, trade places with me and ask me a question."
So they traded places, and Joe asked, "I heard that you and my wife are having an affair; is that true?"
The priest answered, "By golly, you can’t hear in here."
