Translation: 

During the Spanish inquisition, a priest persuaded a Jew to convert to Christianity. One day, on a Friday afternoon, the priest came to visit the Jew, to make sure he is not breaking any Christian laws, but was surprised to find the Jew sitting down having a roasted veal for lunch.

“What is this?!” said the priest, “are you eating meat?! You know that’s not allowed on a Friday.”

“No, it’s not meat, it’s fish”, the Jew replied.
