Boy gets collared.

Byline: Bob Shields

A LITTLE boy is on a bus and doesn't realise he is sitting next to a priest.

"Hey mister, your collar is on back to front," he says.

"Yes," says the grumpy priest, "I am a father."

"So is my dad and he doesn't wear his collar back to front."

"Well, I am a father to many," replies the priest.

"So is my dad. I have seven brothers and sisters," says the lad.

The priest smiled thinly.

"Well, I am the father to hundreds, perhaps even thousands," he replied.

The little boy thought for a minute.

"Mister, if you wore your trousers back to front instead of your collar, you might not get into so much bother."
