Muldoon was living in County Cork. He had a dog that he loved like a son, but one day the dog died.
Muldoon went to the church and asked the priest if he could do a funeral mass for the dog. The priest said, you fool, I can’t do a funeral mass for an animal!
Muldoon asked him if he thought the protestant church down the way might consider it. The priest said, who knows what those people believe. It’s worth a try.
Muldoon asked the priest if he thought one thousand Euros was enough for the service. Damn you Muldoon, said the priest, why didn’t you tell me the dog was Catholic?
