Did the Priest Lie?

A distinguished young woman on a flight from Ireland asked the Priest beside her:

Woman: "Father, may I ask a favour?"
Priest: "Of course. What may I do for you?"
Woman: "Well, I bought an expensive woman's electronic hair dryer for my
mother's birthday that is unopened and well over the Customs limits, and I'm
afraid they'll confiscate it. Is there any way you could carry it through
Customs for me.......... Under your robe perhaps?"

Priest: "I would love to help you, dear, but I mus= warn you: I will not lie."

Woman: "With your honest face, Father, no one will question you."

When they got to the Customs, she let the priest go ahead of her.

Custom Officer: "Father, do you have anything to declare?"

Priest: "From the top of my head down to my waist, I have nothing to declare. "

The official thought this answer was strange.

Customs Officer:: "And what do you have to declare from your waist to the floor?"

Priest: "I have a marvelous instrument designed to be used on a woman, but
which is, to date, unused."

Custom Officer roaring with laughter, said "Go ahead, Father. Next"

Now............. truly, did the priest lie?
