GUEST,John Gray / Australia Puns: Give us your worst/best (106* d) RE: Puns: Give us your worst/best 26 Apr 01


Gee, too quick on the draw.

A hiker, lost for many days in the alps, finally staggers up to a lonely monastry one night and knocks on the door. A monk opens the door and the hiker says, can you let me in, I'm lost, wet and hungry. The monk replied that it was forbidden to permit strangers into the monastry but, as the hiker was so distressed, the monk relented. He told the stranger he would give him a spare habit to wear and as long as he followed the monk, and copied his actions, the head abbott should be none the wiser. The hiker was fed and put to bed. At 4.00am the monk woke him up and told him to put on the habit as they had to go to the first chanting session of the day, it was still dark. They went to a large hall where all the monks were assembled before the abbott. The abbott chanted "gooood mooorrrning". The monks replied in kind but the poor disoriented hiker replied "gooood eeeevening". The abbott immediately smelt a rat and chanted ;

SOMEONE CHANTED EEEVENING, YOU MUST BE A STRANGER......
