The Donkey Story...

 

 

The pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

The pastor was so  pleased with the donkey that he entered in another race
and it won  again.

The local paper  read:

PASTOR'S ASS OUT  FRONT.

The Bishop  was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the
pastor  not to enter the donkey in any more  races.

The next day the local paper headline  read:

     BISHOP SCRATCHES THE PASTOR'S ASS.

This was too much for the Bishop, so  he ordered the pastor
to get rid of the donkey.

The pastor decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent.

The  local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline:

NUN HAS THE 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.

The next day the headlines  read:

NUN SELLS ASS FOR  $10.

This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy  back
the donkey and lead it to the high plains where it could run  free.

The  next day the headlines read:

NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND  FREE.

Alas .... The Bishop was buried the next day.

MORAL OF THE STORY???

Being concerned about public opinion  can bring you much grief and misery and
even shorten your  life.

So,  be yourself and enjoy life.

Stop worrying  about everyone else's ass and you'll live longer.
