Want a Tuesday, last day of May laugh? I wasn't able to post the other correct name for donkey, so you'll have to interject it yourself as you read -
The Pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won. He was so pleased that he entered it in another race and it won again. The local paper read:
PASTOR'S "DONKEY" OUT IN FRONT
The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day the local paper headline read:
BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S "DONKEY"
This was too much for the Bishop so he ordered the Pastor to get rid of the donkey. The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day:
NUN HAS BEST "DONKEY" IN TOWN
The Bishop collapsed. He informed the Nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the paper read:
NUN SELLS "DONKEY" FOR $10
This was too much for the Bishop and he ordered the Nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild. The headline the next day was:
NUN ANNOUNCES HER "DONKEY" IS WILD AND FREE
The Bishop was buried the next day.
