David, a young dedicated Christian, decided to join a monastery. He worked very hard, and in the long run, he was permitted to take his vows.


He had many promises, including to be free of the desire for possessions, to be faithful, and, in particular, celibate.

After initiating into the holy order, he finally became one of the brother monks.

The job he was given was to copy the ancient holy manuscripts, which he accomplished for quite a long while. 

Having been religiously obedient and celibate, David was elevated to the post of fact-checker.

He was then entrusted with reading the original manuscripts. He ensured they had always been copied letter for letter, in exactly the same words.

At some point, while eating their lunch, the rest of the monks noticed that David was missing.

The head abbot immediately searched for David and found him in the archives. David bent over an original ancient text, crying.

The abbot was terrified. "Brother David, what is wrong?" he asked.

"All this time … all this time …" was all David could choke out.

"David, all this time, what?" the abbot insisted.

"All this time … we've been copying it wrong. The word is 'celebrate.'"

If you roared in laughter, this next joke will make you laugh some more.

The little boy got on the bus and sat next to a man reading a book. He noticed the man had his collar on backward. His curiosity getting the best of him, the little boy asked why he wore his collar backward.

His eyes still on the book, the man, who was a priest, said: "I am a Father." This answer only heightened the child's curiosity. He said, "My Daddy doesn't wear his collar like that."

The priest looked up from his book and answered, "I am the Father of many." The boy said, "My Dad has four boys, four girls, and two grandchildren, and he doesn't wear his collar that way!"

The priest, looking entirely unamused, said: "I am the Father of hundreds." He then went back to reading his book, quite confident the little boy finally got it.

The little boy sat quietly, thinking for a while. But then he leaned over and said to the priest, "Maybe you should wear a condom and put your pants on backward instead of your collar."
