Heard the one about the Catholic bishop who wanted to ban Jewish jokes?
The Archbishop of Adelaide, Philip Wilson, has written to almost 150 priests saying Catholics should be sensitive towards Jews.
“While I know most of you would not tolerate the improper nature and offence caused by Jewish jokes, I sadly note that this has happened in our church in the past. I know you will agree with me that this is unacceptable.
“Since the terrible crimes committed against the Jewish people in the 20th century, Catholics must continue to search their hearts,” he added.
