Too Many Confessions of Adultry

An old priest was getting sick and tired of all the people in his parish who kept confessing adultery. One Sunday in the pulpit he said, "If I hear one more person confess to adultery, I'll quit!" So the parishioners came up with a code word. Someone who had committed adultery would say then "fallen". This seemed to satisfy the old priest and things went well until the priest died at a ripe old age. About a weak later, the new priest visited the Mayor of the town and seemed very concerned. The priest said, "You have to do something about the sidewalks in town, when people came into the confessional, they kept talking about having fallen." The Mayor started to laugh, realizing that no one had told the new priest about the code word. The priest took an accusing finger at the Mayor and said, "I don't know what you are laughing about, your WIFE fell three times this weak."
