During the French revolution a priest, a drunk and an engineer are sent to the guillotine.

They ask the priest if he wants to face up or down when he meets his fate. The priest says he would like to face up so he will be looking towards heaven when he dies. They raise the blade of the guillotine and release it. It comes speeding down and suddenly stops just inches from his neck. The authorities take this as divine intervention and release the priest.

The drunkard comes to the guillotine next. He also decides to die face up, hoping that he will be as fortunate as the priest. They raise the blade of the guillotine and release it. It comes speeding down and suddenly stops just inches from his neck. Again, the authorities take this as a sign of divine intervention, and they release the drunkard as well.

Next is the engineer. He, too, decides to die facing up. As they slowly raise the blade of the guillotine, the engineer suddenly says, "Hey, I see what your problem is ..."

4. So, knowing Christians,

they fixed it and executed them all.

They cannot be flawed with honesty.

I responded, because I want a history of it to use it later. I like it.

10. I have never been accused of using an original or new joke and I'm way too old...

...to be so accused at this point.

I never saw a good joke I didn't want to steal.
