The Preacher's AssA preacher wanted to raise money for his church, and being told that there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to buy one and enter him in the races. However, at the local auction, the going price of a horse was so high that he bought a donkey instead. He figured that since he had it he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races, and to his surprise the donkey came in third. The next day, the racing sheets carried this headline:
"PREACHER'S ASS SHOWS"
The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the races again, and this time it won! The paper read:
"PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT"
The bishop was so upset with this publicity that he ordered the preacher not to enter his donkey in another race. The headlines read:
"BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER'S ASS"
This was too much for the bishop and he ordered the preacher to get rid of the animal. The preacher decided to give it to a nun in the nearby convent. The headlines read:
"NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN"
The bishop fainted! He informed the nun that she would have to dispose of the donkey. She finally found a farmer willing to buy him for $10. The paper read:
"NUN PEDDLES ASS FOR TEN BUCKS"
They buried the bishop the next day. The headline?:
"NUN'S ASS KILLS BISHOP"
