Joke #21162: What the Monks Didn’t Know…

One day, two monks were in the vaults of the monastery going through the old scrolls.

“You see, there are the originals,” said the first monk. “All the new scrolls were copied from these.”

“What? What does it say?”

“Celebrate. IT SAYS CELEBRATE!”

A minister waited in line to have his car filled with gas just before a long holiday weekend.

The attendant worked quickly, but there were many cars ahead of him in front of the service station. Finally, the attendant motioned him toward a vacant pump.

Bill Gates my father is not.

As church treasurer, he had two files, one labeled “St. Mary’s Income” and one labeled “St. Mary’s Expenditures.”

While copying them from a Macintosh to a PC, he had no idea the PC would automatically truncate the file names to ten characters, eliminate spaces, and replace apostrophes with periods.

Now the church’s income is stored in “St.Mary.sin” and expenses in “St.Mary.sex.”
