1. There was a man one time and he used to go round the houses three weeks before Easter. One day he went to a man who was living in a house. The man told him to go away and get him a baby. He went down the road till he came to a house and he saw a child on the street. He lifted the child and brought it to the man.
When he went to confession one day the priest was asking him some questions and he said "Ha, ha laddy Dickie told you to pick me but I'll tell you no more".
