Father O’Grady was saying his goodbyes to the parishioners after his Sunday morning service as he always does, when Mary Clancy came up to him in tears.

‘What’s bothering you so, dear?’ inquired Father O’Grady.
‘Oh, father, I’ve got terrible news,’ replied Mary ‘Well what is it, Mary?’
‘Well, my husband, passed away last night, Father, straight after coming home from the golf club.’

‘Well, yes he did father,’ replied Mary.
‘What did he ask, Mary?’
Mary replied, ‘He said, “Please, Mary, put down the gun . . .” ‘
