A priest had the weight of the world on his shoulders and was showing the effects. The church sent him to a psychiatrist, who ordered him to take a week off. So the priest left his religious paraphernalia behind him and went to a neighboring city. He got himself a nice room and went to the hotel bar to relax with a couple stiff drinks.
A waitress in a short skirt and low-cut uniform came over and asked, “What’ll it be, Father?”
The priest felt to see if he was still wearing his collar by mistake, but he had none on.
“How did you know I’m a priest?” he asked.
The waitress said, “I’m Sister Mary Margaret. We go to the same psychiatrist!”

Thursday’s Quizzler is……….
Seven letters are we,
Four different words we make.
Guess us or be ridiculed;
Your reputation’s at stake.
The first has pictures,
Paintings and such.
The second causes sneezing,
From ragweed or dust.
The third is an adverb,
It’s hard to explain
It’s the same as immensely
But it’s much more plain.
If you can act like a king,
this word you will sing.
These clues are sparse
This riddle may be tough.
But if you are smart
Then it will be enough.
