Are you Catholic enough to laugh at a Catholic joke like this one?

A guy goes into a restaurant and is greeted by the hostess, who asks: “Smoking or non-smoking?”

“Non-smoking,” he replies.

He is seated and the waiter comes over to his table to take his drink order.

“I’ll have a Coke,” he states.

The waiter says: “Diet or regular?”

“Regular.”

“Caffeine or caffeine-free?”

“With caffeine.”

The drink is brought to his table and the guy orders his food. The waiter asks what kind of dressing he’d like on his salad: “Italian, French, Thousand Island or raspberry vinaigrette?”

“Italian.”

“Regular or fat-free?”

“Regular.”

The man orders a steak with vegetables and potato.

“How do you want that prepared: rare, medium rare, medium well or well done?”

“Medium well.”

“How do you want your vegetables: raw, steamed, baked, boiled, blanched or fried?”

“Boiled.”

“And how would you like your potato: Baked, French fried or mashed?”

“Baked.”

Finally, the poor man has had enough and looks up to heaven and shouts: “I can’t take all of these choices!”

The man calls up his patron saint saying: “St. Francis, help me — help me with all these decisions!”

At that moment a voice booms from the sky: “Assisi, Xavier or DeSales?”
