    Mitch, a hard-shell Southern Baptist, loved to sneak away to the
    race
    track.One day he was there betting on the ponies and nearly losing
    his

    shirt when he noticed this priest who stepped out onto the track
    and blessed

    the forehead of one of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo
    and behold,

    this horse - a very long shot - won the race.

    Mitch was most interested to see what the priest did the next race.
    Sure

    enough, he watched the priest step out onto the track as the 5th
    race

    horses lined up, and placed his blessing on the forehead of one of the horses.


    Mitch made a beeline for the window and placed a small bet
    on the

    horse. Again, even though another long shot, the horse the priest
    had blessed

    won the race. Mitch collected his winning and anxiously waited to
    see which

    horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for the 6th race. The
    priest

    showed, blessed a horse, Mitch bet on it, and it won! Mitch was elated!

    As the day went on, the priest continued blessing one of the
    horses,

    and it always came in first. Mitch began to pull in some serious
    ,money and by
    the last race, he knew his wildest dreams were going to come true.
    He

    made a quick stop at the ATM, withdrew big money and awaited the
    priest's

    blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on.
    True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before
    the

    last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of
    the

    horses. Mitchell bet every cent, and watched the horse come in dead
    last.

    Mitchell was dumbfounded. He made his way to the track and when he

    found the priest, he demanded," What happened, Father? All day you
    blessed horses

    and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now
    I've lost my

    savings, thanks to you!!"

    The priest nodded wisely and said, "That's the problem with you
    Protestants... you can't tell the difference between a simple
    blessing
    and the Last Rites.
