A preacher wanted to raise some money for his church and being told
there was a fortune in horse racing, he decided to purchase one and
enter him in the race. However, at the local auction the going
price for a horse was so steep he ended up buying a donkey instead
and decided to enter it in the races.
To his surprise, the donkey came in third. The next day the paper
carried this headline, "Preacher's Ass Shows." The Bishop was so
upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the preacher not
to enter the donkey in another race. The newspaper printed this
headline, "Bishop Scratches Preacher's Ass."
This was too much for the Bishop. He ordered the preacher to get
rid of the animal. The preacher decided to give it to a nun. The
newspaper printed this headline: "Nun has the Best Ass in Town."
The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to
dispose of the donkey. She found a farmer who was willing to pay
$10.00 for it. The newspaper stated, "Nun Peddles Ass for $10.00."
They buried the Bishop the next day.
