This one's for the Daring Young Mom, who has never had to resort to such drastic measures in order to get a good spot in front of her supermarket of choice!
Paddy was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place.
Looking up to heaven he said, "Lord take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of me life and give up me Irish Whiskey".
Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Paddy looked up again and said, "Never mind, I found one."
H/T to my dad for this one!
