The Preacher's Donkey
A preacher wanted to raise money for his church, and on being told
that there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to purchase one and
enter it in the races. However,
at the local auction, the going price for a horse was so high, that he
ended up buying a donkey instead. He
figured that since he had it, he might as well go ahead and enter it in
the races. To his surprise,
the donkey came in third!
The next day the local paper carried this headline:
PREACHER'S ASS SHOWS
The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in
the race again, and this time it won!
The paper read:
PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT
The bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered
the preacher not to enter the donkey in another race.
The paper headline read:
BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER'S ASS
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the preacher to get
rid of the donkey. The
preacher decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.
The paper headline the next day read:
NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN
The bishop fainted. When
he recovered, he informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the
donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for ten dollars.
The next day, the paper read:
NUN SELLS ASS FOR TEN DOLLARS
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back
the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day, the headlines read:
NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE
The bishop was buried the next day.
