A priest down at the local church needed to raise some money for his church. After speaking with the elders, he decided that there was money to be made in horse racing. So he decided to purchase a race horse and enter it into some races. However the going price for a race horse was more than he could afford. So not knowing anything about racing, he ended up buying a donkey instead.
entered the donkey into a small race and to everyone’s surprise the donkey came
in third! The next day the local paper carried this headline: FATHER MULCAHEY’S
The priest was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and this time it won. The next day, the paper read: FAHER MULCAHEY’S ASS OUT IN FRONT
The Bishop caught sight of this in the morning paper and was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the priest not to enter the donkey in another race. Of course, the Priest agreed and the next day the newspaper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES FATHER’S ASS
The Bishop had enough of this whole thing and ordered the priest to get rid of the donkey. The priest decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The next morning, the paper’s headline read: NUN NOW HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN
The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.00. Next day the headline read: NUN SELLS HER ASS FOR $10.00
This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey, lead it to the plains where it could run wild and free. Next day, the headline in the paper read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS NOW WILD AND FREE
The Bishop was buried the next day.
