Did you hear the one about?

Majellan jokes have been a favourite with our readers for many years.

A boy asks his father if he can borrow the family car. The father replies, “No, not until you cut your hair.”

The boy then said, “But father … Jesus had long hair!”

“Yeah, but Jesus walked everywhere,” the father retorted.


A small child in church for the first time watched as the ushers passed the offering plates. When they neared the pew where he sat, the youngster piped up, “Don’t pay for me daddy, I’m under five.”


After Mass one Sunday morning, a young boy suddenly announced to his mother, “Mum, I’ve decided to become a priest when I grow up.”

“That’s okay but what made you decide that?” she asked.

“Well,” said the little boy, “I have to go to church on Sunday anyway, and I figure it will be more fun to stand up and yell than to sit down and listen.”


The priest was greeting people at the door after Mass when a woman approached and said, “Father, that was a good sermon.”

The priest replied, “Oh, I have to give credit to the Holy Spirit.”

“It wasn’t that good,” exclaimed the woman.

The boy replied, “That’s why I gave you the dollar, Father, because my dad says you’re the poorest preacher we’ve ever had.”

It was the first day of school and the teacher told her kindergarten class: “If anyone wants to go to the toilet, they should hold up their hand.”

There was a moment’s silence and then a little boy asked: “How will that help?”
