Thursday Special ~ Holy Shampoo

While shopping in a food store, two nuns happened to pass by the beer, wine, and liquor section. One asked the other if she would like a beer. The second nun answered that, indeed, it would be very nice to have one, but that she would feel uncomfortable about purchasing it.

The first nun replied that she would handle that without a problem. She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier.

The cashier had a surprised look, so the nun said, ‘This is for washing our hair.’

Without blinking an eye, the cashier reached under the counter and put a package of pretzel sticks in the bag with the beer. ‘The curlers are on me.’

  1. Hello Rinkly and welcome.

    Like so many of the stories on a Thursday they come from a bottomless folder constantly refilled by friends around the globe. Some of them rotate the globe more times than the sun. At the moment emails are winging their way here with stories I used a couple of years ago.

    I do not need credit but if you do turn it into a poem, link it back here so the other commenters can read and enjoy it!

  2. Smart cashier!!

    In college, I was being initiated into a sorority and was told to go to a pharmacy and ask for an acetabulum and a scapula. I had no idea what they were, and no way/time to look them up. The pharmacist didn’t bat an eyelash when he put a pack of condoms in a bag and handed it to me. I was embarrassed beyond belief!!

  3. Grannymar,

    Nuns are always good for a fun story. Here’s another….

    A cop pulls over a car load of nuns. The cop says, “Sister, this is a 55 MPH highway. Why are you going so slow?”

    The Sister replies, “Sir, I saw a lot of signs that said 41, not 55.”

    The cop answers, “Oh, Sister, that’s not the speed limit, that’s the name of the highway you are on!”

    The Sister says, “Oh! Silly me! Thanks for letting me know. I’ll be more careful.”

    At this point, the cop looks in the backseat where the other nuns are shaking and trembling.

    The cop asks, “Excuse me, Sister, what’s wrong with your friends back there? They are shaking something terrible.”

    The Sister answers, “Oh, we just got off Highway 101.”

  4. @Conor – Glad you enjoyed it.

    @Judy – I feel your pain.

    @Nancy – In NI we only have motorways numbered 1,2,3 & 5. Not sure what happened about no 4.

  5. A Nun needs to use the facilities in a hurry. In desperation she goes into the only place that might have a ladies room, which happens to be a HOOTERS.

    She goes up to the bartender and quietly asks him if she may use the Ladies room.

    He directs her to the proper place and she hurriedly proceeds there.

    A short time later the Nun emerges and everyone in the bar erupts in laughter.

    The Nun asks they bartender why they are laughing.

    He said, “Well, Sister, you saw that replica of that statue of David we have in there with the fig leaf in the appropriate place?” When the fig leaf is raised, a light comes on over the outside of the door.”

  6. @Darlene – that would explain why my mother always said “Don’t touch anything” when we went to the loo away from home! πŸ˜‰

    @ChrisD – Yes, beer is a good hair conditioner.

  7. Nice ones ladies!
    Beer’s good in casseroles too! It makes nice gravy and wicked fish batter! (didn’t have a joke so gave you a hot tip!)

  8. @ Baino – Nice one. The beer batter sounds interesting.

    @Paddy – Only the empties left now. πŸ™„
