A game of basketball between L.A.
and Houston saw Maurice and cousin Frank
take seats to watch the match. Just as the play
began, a giggling group of nuns sat down
and filled the bench in front and on each flank,
with wide white head-wear like a creamy crown.
Maurice exclaimed to Frank, " I'll move to Maine,
I hear that Catholics number one percent. "
Frank growled back, " I'd move to the Ukraine.
They tell me that, a million Catholics fled
the government. " To end your discontent,"
A nun, with dignity, turned round and said,
" why don't you go to Hell, because that's where
you can be sure, there are no Catholics there! "
