A preacher wanted to earn money for his church. He had heard there was big money in horse racing, so he decided to purchase a horse and enter it in a race. However, at the local auction, the going price for horses was too steep and the preacher ended up buying a donkey. The preacher figured that since he had the donkey, he might as well enter it in the races.
The next day the donkey came in third place. The following day in the racing form, the headlines appeared: PREACHER’S ASS SHOWS
The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the next day’s race. This time the donkey won. The racing form read: PREACHER’S ASS OUT IN FRONT
The ranking Bishop was so upset with this type of publicity that he ordered the preacher to not enter the donkey in anymore races. The next headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER’S ASS
This was too much for the Bishop and he ordered the preacher to get rid of the donkey. The preacher decided to give the animal to a nearby convent. The following day the paper read: NUNS HAVE BEST ASS IN TOWN
The Bishop fainted. He informed the Nuns to get rid of the animal, so they sold it to a farmer for $10. The next day the paper read: NUNS PEDDLE ASS FOR TEN BUCKS
Unfortunately, this was too much for the poor Bishop’s heart, and they buried him the very next day. That day’s paper read: TOO MUCH ASS RESPONSIBLE FOR BISHOP’S DEATH
