HAPPY HALLOWEEN SAT.

A cabbie picks up a Nun. She gets in the cab & notices the very handsome cab driver won*t stop staring at her.  She asks him why he is staring. He says, *I have a question to ask, but
I don*t want to offend you.* She: *My son, you can*t offend me. When you*re as old as I am and have been a nun as long as I have, you see & hear just about everything. I*m sure you could say
or ask anything that I would not find offensive.*  Cabbie:  *Well, I*ve always had a fantasy to have a nun kiss me.*  Nun responds, *I only have to ask if you are single.* The excited cabbie says, *Yes, I*m
single.*  *OK* says nun, *Pull into the next alley.*  She fulfills his fantasy with a kiss that would make a hooker blush.  They get back on the road and cabbie starts to cry. *My dear, why are you crying?*
Cabbie: *Forgive me, but I*ve sinned & I must confess.  I*m married.*  The nun says, *That*s OK. My name is Kevin & I*m going to a Halloween party.*
