Drop the dead donkey

Father O’Malley rose from  his  bed one morning. It was a fine spring day in his new Ballina parish.

He walked to the  window of his bedroom to get a deep breath  of the fresh air outside. He then noticed there was a donkey lying dead in the middle of his front lawn.  Not knowing who else to call, he promptly called the local police station.

The conversation went like   this:
”Good morning. This is Sergeant Jones.  How might I help you?”

“And the best of the day  ter yer good self. This is Father O’Malley at St. Francis Xavier Catholic  Church. There’s a donkey lying dead right in  there  middle of me front lawn ”

Sergeant Jones,  considering himself to  be quite a wit, replied with a smirk, “Well  now Father, it was always my impression that  you people took care of the last rites!”

There was dead  silence on the line for a long moment and then Father O’Malley replied: “Ah, ‘to be sure, that is true; but we are also  obliged to notify the next of  kin.”
