Priest's Backwards Collar

Father of Many


A little boy gets on the bus, sits next to a man reading a newspaper, and notices he has his collar on backwards.
The little boy asks why he wears his collar that way.
The man, who is a priest, says, “I am a Father.”

The little boy replies, “My father doesn’t wear his collar like that.”
The priest looks up from his paper and answers, “I am the Father of many.”

The little boy says, “My dad has four girls, four boys, and two grandchildren, and he doesn’t wear his collar that way.”
The priest, getting impatient, says, “I am the Father of hundreds,” and went back to reading his paper.

The little boy sits quietly, but on leaving the bus, leans over and says, “Well, maybe you should wear your pants backwards instead of your collar.”
