Daily Joke: A Man Borrows a Horse While Heading into Town

Here’s a hilarious story of a man who borrowed a horse from a missionary to help him head into town. You’ll burst out laughing at the end of this story.

The story goes… One hot day, a lost man saw the house owned by a missionary. He had been walking in the desert for two weeks. Tired and weak, he collapsed on the houses’ doorstep.

The missionary nursed him to health, and the latter slowly recovered strength. Feeling better, the man asked for directions to the nearest town.

He saw a horse while on his way out the back door. He made a request to the missionary. "Could I borrow your horse and give it back when I reach the town?” the man asked.

The kind missionary lent him the horse, wanting to be of help to the lost man. The missionary said his horse was special. He reminded the man to say "Thank God" to make it go and "Amen" to make it stop.

Not paying close attention as the future travel preoccupied his mind, the man nodded to the missionary’s instructions. During his travel, he kept saying "Thank God."

As he saw the cliff from a distance, the man tried to stop the horse from walking. He pulled the rope in order to command the horse to stop walking.

Feeling panicky, he finally remembered the word from the missionary. He said "Amen" and the horse stopped.

It was a close call. The horse stopped four centimeters from the cliff. He felt relieved. Leaning back to the saddle, he said "Thank God."
