Two priests decided to go to Hawaii on vacation.
They were determined to make it a real vacation by not wearing anything that would identify them as clergy. To that end, as soon as their plane landed in Hawaii, they headed to a store and bought outrageous flowered shorts, along with equally gaudy shirts, sandals, and sunglasses.
The next morning they went to the beach in front of their hotel, dressed in their over-the-top tourist garb, and soon got comfortable on a couple of lounge chairs.
Shortly, as they were enjoying frozen drinks and the sunshine, a drop-dead gorgeous blonde in a string bikini came walking straight toward them, and they couldn't help but stare.
As she passed them by, she looked over her shoulder and said, "Hello, Father" to the one priest, then glanced at the other and repeated, "Hello, Father." With a smile, she then moved on down the beach.
The two men were both stunned. How had the woman known they were priests?
So, the next day, they went back to the tourist store and bought even more outrageous outfits. These outfits were so loud that you could hear them even before you saw them.
Attired in their new outfits, they returned to the beach to sit and enjoy the sun and the ocean. After a while, the same gorgeous blonde, wearing a different and particularly exotic string bikini, came sauntering toward them, taking her sweet time as she played with the sand with her toes. Again she nooded at the two priests and said, "Good morning, Father... Good morning, Father," before beginning to move off.
One of the priests couldn't stand it any longer and said, "Just a minute, young lady."
"Yes, Father?" she said.
"We are indeed priests, and proud of it," he said. "But I have to know, how in the world do you know we are priests, dressed as we are?"
She replied, "Father, it's me, Sister Kathleen."
