A priest and a rabbi presided over a church and a synagogue that were located across the street from each other.
Since their official schedules regularly coincided, they decided to club together to buy a car.
After the purchase, they drove it home and parked it on the street between their two locations.
A few minutes later, the rabbi looked out of the window and saw that the priest was sprinkling water on their new car.
It didn’t need a wash as they had just purchased it, so he hurried out and asked the priest what he was doing.
“I’m blessing it”, the priest replied.
The rabbi considered this for a few a minutes, then went back inside the synagogue.
He reappeared a moment later with a hacksaw, walked over to the back of the car and cut two inches off the tailpipe.
