So there was this monk

Post by guppy on Sat May 10, 2014 11:56 am

There was a monk who was very devout and pledged his life to the ways of being a monk.  He was required to remain silent and not speak.  Well, hardly ever.


He was only allowed to speak two words every ten years.


So he kept silent for ten years and didn't speak a word.  Then the head monk came to him and told him it was time for him to say his two words.


The monk said, "Bad food."


So another ten years goes by.  The monk kept silent the whole time and never said a word. 



The head monk came to him and told him that he was proud of him for keeping his vow of silence, and that he was now permitted to say two words.


The monk said, "Hard bed."


He then went back into silence mode.  He kept silent for another ten years, never speaking a single word.  He was now getting old and weak, but as difficult as it was, he kept his vow.


After ten more years, the head monk informed him he was allowed once more to say two words.


The monk said, "I quit."


The head monk looked at him and said, "Well, I'm not surprised.  You've done nothing but complain since you got here."

A guy went dumpster diving and found two items. A painting and a violin. A Rembrandt and a Stradivarius. He thought he'd pulled off a double find of a lifetime.
Not so much.
It turns out Rembrandt made terrible violins and Stradivari couldn't paint a lick.
