A very distinguished lady was filling out her customs form as the plane prepared to land. She was seated next to a friendly priest and asked for his help.
"Excuse me Father, could I ask a favour?" she asked.
To which he replied: "Of course my child, What can I do for you?"
"Here is the problem, I bought myself a new sophisticated hair remover gadget for which I paid an enormous sum of money. But I have really gone over the declaration limits and I am worried that they will confiscate it at customs. Do you think you could hide it under your cassock?"
"Of course I could, my child, but you must realise that I can not lie."
"You have such an honest face Father, I am sure they will not ask you any questions", and she gave him the hair remover.
The aircraft landed and when the priest presented himself to customs he was asked, "Father, do you have anything to declare?"
"From the top of my head to my sash, I have nothing to declare, my son," he replied cleverly.
Finding this reply strange, the customs officer asked, "And from the sash down, what do you have?"
The priest replied, "I have hidden there a marvellous little instrument designed for use by women, but which has never been used."
"Go ahead Father," the customers officer blushed, "Next!"
