Nuns are those enigmatic, penguin-esque ladies of the cloth who have committed themselves to a life of prayer, service, and probably way too much bingo. They’re the subject of countless Hollywood movies, revered by some and seen as a mystery by others. I mean, you’ve got to admire someone who willingly commits to a life devoid of attachments, lavish possessions, and premium streaming services. They’re like spiritual ninjas, sneaking through life with rosary beads instead of nunchucks, spreading the good word, and battling the forces of evil (and carbs) one Hail Mary at a time.
Enter clean nun jokes, the guilt-free indulgence even Sister Mary Elephant would chuckle at during Sunday school. These jokes combine the serenity of monastic life with the absurdity of…well, human life. Whether it’s puns about “habit-forming behavior” or tales of nuns outsmarting the devil himself, the humor always lands on the holier side of the comedy spectrum.
The jokes are clean enough that you won’t need ten Hail Marys and a Rosary lap to feel pure again. And let’s be honest, in a world where irreverence is the new black, a little respectful hilarity feels almost…heavenly. So, go ahead, tell a clean nun joke; it’s the closest some of us will ever get to being saintly.

A Catholic High School had a legendary American football team.
Every year, the team was in the state championship game and usually won it handily. Every able lad within a few hundred miles wanted to play football for Central Catholic Fighting Knights.
Those who were familiar with the program knew that the true heart and soul of the Knights football program was Sister Mary Margaret, an aged nun who would, in full habit, get out on the practice field and work on routes with the receivers, give pointers to the quarterbacks on their stances and releases, but most of all, love them like the second mother that she became to all of the boys in that program.
One year, on the eve of the state championship game, some evil malefactors broke into the convent and kidnapped Sister Mary Margaret. Everyone was stunned by the news, but none more so than the Knights of Central Catholic. They were devastated at the loss of their mentor.
As you might guess, the state championship game didn’t go very well. For the first time in the history of the football program, the Knights were shut out. The Spartans beat them 42-0.

A man walks into a bar and orders a whiskey
When the barman serves it up, he takes it out to the bench in front of the bar to drink it.
As he’s enjoying his drink, a nun walks by, and glares at him sourly. “How can you pollute your soul with the Devil’s drink like that?” she asks.
The man shrugs. “It’s not the Devil, it’s just whiskey.”
“But it’s sinful and wicked!”
“How do you know it’s so bad, then? Have you ever tasted whiskey?”
“Of course not! My sisters and mother superior told me how evil drink is.”
“But how do they know? Have they ever had a drink?”
They go back and forth like this for a while, before at last, the nun relents. “Well, I suppose that if I were to try a sip of whiskey, I would better understand how it corrupts the soul. But it wouldn’t do for any of my sisters to come by here and see me drinking. Could you order me one in a teacup?”
The man agrees this is fair, and walks inside to the barman.
“Two whiskeys, but put one in a teacup, please.”

“It was,” sighed the Sister. “And I went to play golf with my brother. We try to play golf as often as we can. You know I was quite a talented golfer before I devoted my life to Christ.”
“I seem to recall that,” the Mother Superior agreed. “So I take it your day of recreation was not relaxing?”
“Far from it,” snorted the Sister. “In fact, I took the Lord’s name in vain today!”
“Goodness, Sister!” gasped the Mother Superior, astonished. “You must tell me all about it!”
“Well, we were on the fifth tee — and this hole is a monster, Mother — 540 yard par 5, with a nasty dogleg right and a hidden green … and I hit the drive of my life. The sweetest swing I’ve ever made. And it’s flying straight and true, right along the line I wanted … and it hits a bird in mid-flight!”
“Oh my!” commiserated the Mother Superior. “How unfortunate! But surely that didn’t make you blaspheme, Sister!”
“No, that wasn’t it,” admitted the Sister. “While I was still trying to fathom what had happened, this squirrel runs out of the woods, grabs my ball and runs off down the fairway!”
“Oh, that would have made me blaspheme!” sympathized the Mother Superior.
“But I didn’t, Mother!” sobbed the Sister. “And I was so proud of myself! And while I was pondering whether this was a sign from God, this hawk swoops out of the sky and grabs the squirrel and flies off, with my ball still clutched in his paws!”
“So that’s when you cursed,” said the Mother Superior with a knowing smile.
“Nope, that wasn’t it either,” cried the Sister, anguished, “because as the hawk started to fly out of sight, the squirrel started struggling, and the hawk dropped him right there on the green, and the ball popped out of his paws and rolled to about 18 inches from the cup!”
The Mother Superior sat back in her chair, folded her arms across her chest, fixed the Sister with a baleful stare and said, “You MISSSED the putt, didn’t you?”
