Your basic rabbi & priest joke

A priest and a rabbi were taking the same flight and had seats next to each other.  After a while, the priest turned to the rabbi and asked, “Is it still a requirement of your faith that you not eat pork?”

The rabbi responded, “Yes, that is still a requirement of our faith.”

The priest then asked, “Have you ever eaten pork?”

The rabbi replied, “Yes, on one occasion I did succumb to the temptation and tasted pork.”

The priest nodded in understanding and went on with his reading.

A while later the rabbi spoke up and asked the priest, “Father, is it still a requirement of your church that you remain celibate?”

The priest replied, “Yes, that is still very much a part of our faith.”

The rabbi then asked him, “Father, have you ever fallen to the temptation of the flesh?”

The priest replied, “Yes, Rabbi, on one occasion I was weak and broke my vow of celibacy.”

The rabbi nodded understandingly for a moment and then said, “A lot better than pork, isn’t it?”
