In the convent chapel the nuns are lining up to confess their sins to the priest.
The first nun goes in:
"Forgive me father, for I have sinned. I've seen a man's penis".
The priest says:
"Well, that's quite bad sister. But go wash your eyes in the holy water and it'll be forgiven"
The second nun enters:
"Forgive me father, for I have sinned. I've touched a man's penis".
The priest shakes his head sadly:
"That is very bad, sister. But if you wash your hands well in the holy water you'll be forgiven".
Suddenly a commotion is heard outside the booth, and the priest goes outside to see two nuns fighting to get ahead.
"What in the lord's name is going on here, sisters?!"
The nun trying to push past looks angrily at him and says:
"Well, I'm trying to get this daft bint to understand I don't wanna have the bloody holy water in my mouth after she's had her arse in there!".
