A preacher wanted to raise money for his church and on being told that
there was a fortune in horse-racing, decided to purchase one and enter
it in the races.  However at the local auction, the going price for a 
horse was so high that he ended up buying a donkey instead.  He figured 
that since he had it, he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races.
To his surprise, the donkey came in third! The next day the local paper
carried this headline:  PREACHER'S ASS SHOWS
The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race
again, and this time it won. The paper read:  PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT
The bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered t=
he preacher not to enter the donkey in another race. The paper headline
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the preacher to get rid of
the donkey. The preacher decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.
The paper headline the next day read:  NUN 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 ten dollars. The next day the
paper read:  NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.00
This was too much for the bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the
donkey and lead it to the plains where it could run wild.
The next day, the headlines read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE
The bishop was buried the next day.
