Daily Joke: Man Wanted to Steal a Hat, But Then He Went to Church
One fine morning, a priest was delivering a sermon in the church, and many people were in attendance. The attendees were listening attentively to the priest's words, and amongst them was a young man.
The priest was giving a sermon on the Seven Deadly Sins, and the young man seemed rather engrossed in it. His face changed expressions as the priest proceeded with the sermon, and compared to the other attendees, he seemed rather affected by the teachings.
So the priest continued to deliver the sermon and stated all the deadly sins one by one, explaining their context with examples for ease of understanding. The young man became even more interested and seemed rather appreciative of the priest.
Finally, the priest concluded the sermon and blessed the attendees in the church. He was greeted by several people who were moved by the sermon and they thanked him for delivering it so brilliantly.
Just then, the young man got up from his seat, walked over to the priest, and said:
"Father, thank you so much for giving that sermon. It meant so much to me, and I'll tell you why. I lost my hat last week and I couldn't find it anywhere. I finally decided to steal a new one from the store, but now that I heard your sermon, I'm not going to."
The priest was delighted to hear that the sermon had affected the young man so positively. He smiled at the man, placed a hand on his shoulder, and said:
"That's good, my son. The part about 'thou shalt not steal' moved you, didn't it?"
The young man's response was such that he had better stolen than made such a revelation. He smiled at the priest and replied: "Nope. After that part about adultery, I remembered where I left my hat."
ANOTHER JOKE ABOUT A HAT
A man once walked into a bar and proceeded to hang his hat and coat on a peg before buying himself a drink. While he was busy hanging his belongings, a dog sitting in the corner leaped up to grab the hat and ripped it apart into several pieces.
The man was furious to see his ripped hat and went straight to the owner to report the issue.
As soon as he had reached where the dog owner stood, he narrated the incident and said, "Did you see what happened? Your dog just ruined my hat."
The dog owner was quick to respond and said, "So what? I couldn't care less."
His indifference bothered the man, who quickly retorted, "I don't like your attitude!"
"It's not my attitude. It's your hat he chewed," replied the dog owner.
