Las VegaS

Postby motoman » Sat Jun 01, 2013 10:01 am

This may come as a surprise to those not living in Las Vegas, but there are more catholic churches than casinos. Not surprisingly, some worshippers at Sunday Service will give casino chips rather than cash when the basket is passed. Since they get chips from many different casinos the churches have divised a method to collect the offerings.....The Churches send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting and then the chips are taken to the casinos of origin and cashed in

:D :D Not bad but did you hear the one about the new monk at the monastery? He is assigned to help the other monks in copying the old texts by hand.

He notices, however, that they are copying copies, not the original books. So, the new monk goes to the head monk to ask him about this. He points out that if there were an error in the first copy, that error would be continued in all of the other copies.

The head monk says "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son." So, he goes down into the cellar with one of the copies to check it against the original.

Hours later, nobody has seen him. So, one of the monks goes downstairs to look for him. He hears a sobbing coming from the back of the cellar, and finds the old monk leaning over one of the original books crying. He asks what's wrong.

The old monk sobs, "The word is celebrate."
