Bishop's Death
Posted by indu on April 11, 1997 at 13:45:58

A priest wanted to raise money for his church.

Seeing that there was a fortune in horse racing, he decided to purchase a horse and enter it in the races.

However, at the local auction, the going price for horses was so steep that the priest ended up buying a donkey.

The priest figured that since he had the donkey anyway, he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races. Much to his surprise, the donkey came in third.

The next day the daily racing form carried the headline: "PRIEST'S ASS SHOWS".

The priest was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the races again the following day. This time the donkey won! The next day the racing daily read: 'PRIEST'S ASS OUT IN FRONT'.

The bishop was so upset with all this publicity that he told the priest not to enter the donkey in another race. The daily headline that day read: "BISHOP SCRATCHES PRIEST'S ASS".

This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the priest to get rid of the animal at once. The priest decided to give the donkey to the nearby convent. The headlines that afternoon read "NUNS HAVE BEST ASS IN TOWN".

The bishop fainted! He informed the nuns that they would have to dispose of the donkey immediately. They found a farmer who was willing to buy the animal for $10. The next day the paper headlines stated: "NUNS PEDDLE ASS FOR TEN BUCKS".

They buried the bishop that afternoon, and on the day after the funeral the headlines read: "TOO MUCH ASS RESPONSIBLE FOR BISHOP'S DEATH".
