A preacher wanted to raise some money for his church and, being told that there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to purchase one and enter him in the races. However, at the local auction, the going price for horses was so steep that he ended up buying a donkey instead. He figured that since he had the donkey, he might as well go ahead and enter the races. To his surprise the donkey came in third. The next day the Racing form 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 won. The form said: "PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT."
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 just too much for the bishop and he ordered the preacher to get rid of the animal. The preacher decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The headline the next day read: "NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN."
The bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to dispose of the donkey and she finally found a farmer who was willing to buy it for $10.00. The paper stated: "NUN PEDDLES ASS FOR TEN DOLLARS."
They buried the Bishop the next day.
