Father O’Reilly had been preaching at his church in Ireland for so long, that he decided to take a vacation.
He was curious as to what everyday life was like in the USA, so he decided that now was a good time to visit and see for himself, before he got too old.
He bought a return ticket from Dublin to Las Vegas and a couple of days later he was airborne and on his way to Nevada.
He arrived in the airport in Las Vegas and as he was getting off the plane, a woman in the airport ran up to him and exclaimed “Elvis! Oh my God! It’s Elvis! I knew you weren’t dead Elvis! How have you been?”
Father O’Reilly looked at her and said, “Get outta me face. Can’t you see I’m not Elvis? I don’t look a thing like Elvis”.
The father made his way through the airport and got into a cab that was waiting outside. He was a little upset after his experience with the woman, so he told the cabby “Take me to my hotel and step on it”.
The cabby turned and said “Sure thing sir – oh my God! It’s Elvis! I knew you weren’t dead! I’m your number one fan! It’s so great to see you!”
“Shut up, you amadon. I’m not Elvis! Now turn around and drive!” Father O’Reilly shouted back at him.
So the cabby drove quickly to the hotel.
Father O’Reilly got his bags and walked up to the hotel check-in counter.
“Oh my God! Oh my God! It’s you!” the hotel clerk screamed. “You’re back Elvis! I knew this day would happen. We saved everything just the way you like it! Free cheeseburgers, peanut butter and fried banana sandwiches, masseurs and a full liquor bar! I’m so glad you’re back!”
Father O’Reilly looked at the hotel clerk and said, “Thank you… thank you very much!”
