A preacher wanted to raise money for his church,
and being told there was a fortune in horse

did quite well and came in third place. The next

the animal won first place. The paper said: Preacher's Ass Out In FrontThe Bishop was so upset with this kind of
publicity that he ordered the preacher not to

the preacher to get rid of the donkey. The
preacher decided to give the animal to a nun in a

informed the nun that she would have to dispose of
the donkey. The nun searched, finally finding a
farmer willing to buy the animal for ten dollars.
The paper stated: Nun Peddles Ass for Ten Bucks! They buried the Bishop the next day.
