Joke of the day for September 11

Peter, the vicar of St Mary’s was enthused to raise money for his cathedral’s roof. He felt the usual tombola would not make enough money so he decided to run a series of donkey Derbies throughout the diocese.

The Reverend Peter learned that Big Al Corleone had a string of donkeys, and persuaded him to loan his donkeys for a series of Derbies. Crucially, Peter induced Big Al to run the best donkey in the Vicar’s name.

It the first Derby, held in the grounds of St Mark’s church, Peter’s donkey came second.

The next day the local chronicle carried this headline: “Vicar’s Ass Shows.”

Two weeks later the next donkey derby was run in St Gabriel’s parish. Peter was thrilled when his donkey won!

The local paper read: “Vicar’s Ass Out Front.”

Problem: the bishop was so upset with the publicity generated by the Chronicle that he ordered the Vicar not to enter the donkey in another race.

The next day, the local paper read: “Bishop Scratches Vicar’s Ass”.

Understandably, the bishop was exasperated and he ordered Peter to sever his association with the donkey Derby. Consequently, the Vicar decided to give the donkey to a nun in a St Cecilia’s convent.

The local paper, hearing the news, posted this headline: “Nun Has Best Ass in Town.”

When he read that headline the bishop fainted. Later, when he had recovered, the bishop summoned the nun and asked her to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for twenty dollars.

The next day’s edition read: “Nun Sells Ass for $20.”

Finally the bishop ordered the nun to buy back the donkey and to release it onto the plains where it could return to nature.

The next day the headlines read: “Nun Announces that Her Ass is Wild and Free”.

The bishop was buried the next day.
