Can Catholics laugh? Let’s see

From the Ironic Catholic (Hey, Google her site!)

An old preacher was dying. He requested that his IRS agent and his lawyer come to his home. When they entered his bedroom, the preacher motioned for them to sit on each side of the bed.

Both the IRS agent and lawyer were touched that the old preacher wanted them to be with him in his final hour. They were also curious, since the preacher had never given any indication of liking either one of them. Finally, the lawyer asked, “Pastor, why did you ask us to come?”
The old preacher mastered up some strength, then said weakly, “Jesus died between two thieves, and that’s how I want to go too.”
