A  married woman is having an affair.  Whenever her lover comes over, she puts
her nine year old son in the closet.  One day the woman hears a car in
the driveway and puts her lover in the closet, as well.

Inside the closet, the little boy says, "It's dark in here, isn't it?"  "Yes
it is," the man replies.  "You wanna buy a baseball?" the little boy asks.
"No thanks," the man replies.  "I think you do want to buy a baseball," the

"SEVENTY-FIVE DOLLARS?!  That's thievery!  I'm taking you to the church right
now.  You must confess your sin and ask for forgiveness", the father explains
as he hauls the child away.

At the church, the little boy goes into the confessional, draws the
curtain, sits down, and says "It's dark in here, isn't it?"  "Don't you start
that shit in here now," the priest says.
