A man walks down the street, and falls in a hole. The walls are steep, he's in over his head, and he can't get out.
A doctor walks past. "Hey," the man shouts, "Can you help me out of this hole?" The doctor stops, writes a prescription, throws it down the hole, and leaves.
A priest walks past. "Hey," the man shouts, "Can you help me out of this hole?" The priest stops, prays over the man in the hole, and walks away.
Then the man sees a friend walking past. "Hey, buddy!" the man shouts. "Can you help me out of this hole, please?" The man's friend stops, and jumps down into the hole with him. "Are you crazy?" sayd the man. "Now we're both stuck in here!"
The friend says "Yeah, but I 've been here before, and I know the way out."
