Always read the Small Print

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.

He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.

So the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up! In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says, We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son.

He goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn’t been opened for hundreds of years.

Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot. So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him. He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.

We missed the R! We missed the R! We missed the R!!!

His forehead is all bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably. The young monk asks the old abbot, ‘What’s wrong, father?’

With a choking and tear filled voice, the Abbot screams: “The word was… the word was… CELEBRATE!!!

  1. Think of all the children who would have been saved from predation if this mistake hadn’t been made.

    • People keep giving Catholic priests a hard time but let’s not forget they revolutionised youth culture.

      They really have a feel for the young people.
