War of wits: Cop vs priest

Father O'Malley looked out the window at his Texas mission and noticed a jackass lying dead in the middle of the front lawn. He promptly called the local police station.

"Good morning, this is Sgt. Jones. How might I help you?"

"This is Father O'Malley at St. Mary's. There's a jackass lying dead in me front lawn. Would ye be so kind as to send a couple of yer lads over to take care of the matter?"

Sgt. Jones, considering himself to be quite a wit, replied, "Well now, Father, it was always my impression that you people took care of last rites!"

"'Tis certainly true," said Father O'Malley, "but we are also obliged to notify the next of kin."
