A rabbi, a priest, and a minister were playing poker when the game gets raided by the police, and are taken before the judge.

The judge said, "I feel really bad about this, and since you are men of the cloth I really don't think we need a full trial. I am simply going to ask you whether or not you were gambling and acccept your answers."

He turned to the priest, first, and said, "Father, where you gambling?"

The priest replied, "well, it depends on your definition of gambling. There was money on the table, but it remained to be seen whether it would change hands at the end of the night, or if it was just a convenient way to mark the progress of the game. So, no, I was not gambling."

"OK," the judge said, "case dismissed." He turned to the minister and said, "Reverend, where you gambling?"

"Again, it depends on your definition of gambling, Judge. Does the amount involved have to be enough to affect your life, or is it otherwise just sort of a variable entrance fee into the game? So, no, I was not gambling."

"OK, case dismissed." Then the judge looked at the rabbi, "where you gambling?"

The rabbi looked to his left at the priest, and then to the right at the minister and then said, "with whom?"
