A truck driver used to amuse himself by running over lawyers, swerving to hit every one he saw walking along the road.
†One day, the truck driver saw a priest hitchhiking.† He thought he would do a good turn and pulled the truck over.† He asked the priest, "Where are you going, Father?".
†"I'm going to the church† 5 miles down the road," replied the priest.
"No problem, Father! I`ll give you a lift."† The happy priest climbed in and the truck driver continued down the road.
Then the truck driver saw a lawyer walking down the road and instinctively he swerved to hit him. But then he remembered there was a priest in the truck with him, so at the last minute he swerved back to the road.
†Although he was certain he missed the lawyer, he still heard a loud "THUD." Not understanding where the noise came from he glanced in his mirrors and when he didn't see anything, he turned to the priest and said,
"I'm sorry Father. I almost hit that lawyer."
†"Thatís okay," replied the priest. "I got him with the door."
