    A priest wanted to raise money for his church and on being told 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:
    PRIEST'S ASS SHOWS.

    The priest was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and this time it won. The local paper read:
    PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.

    The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the priest not to enter the donkey in another race. The next day, the local paper headline read:
    BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.

    This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the priest to get rid of the donkey. The priest decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper, hearing of the news, posted the following headline the next day:
    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.

    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.
