Mitch, a hard-shell Southern
Baptist, loved to sneak away to the racetrack.
On occasion he did
moderately well, but it was usually a losing proposition. One
day he was there, betting on the ponies and losing his shirt,
when he noticed a Catholic priest, attired in the traditional
cassock, step out onto the track and bless the forehead of one
of the horses lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, this
horse -- a very long shot -- won the race.
Mitch was most interested to see what
the priest did the next race.
Sure enough, he watched the priest
step out onto the track as the horses for the fifth race lined
up, and placed a blessing on the forehead of one of the
horses. Mitch made a beeline for the window and placed a small
bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another long shot,
the horse the priest had blessed won the race.
Mitch collected his winnings and
anxiously waited to see which horse the priest bestowed his
blessing on for the 6th race.
The priest showed up, blessed a horse,
Mitch bet on it, and it won! He was elated!
As the day went on, the priest
continued blessing one horse in each of the races, and it
always came in first. Mitch began to pull in some serious
money, and by the last race, he knew his wildest dreams were
going to come true. He made a quick stop at the ATM, withdrew
all of his money from his savings account and awaited the
priest's blessing that would tell him which horse to bet all
his money on.
True to his pattern, the priest
stepped out onto the track before the last race and blessed
the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of the horses.
Mitchell bet every last cent he had,
from his winnings and his savings account money. He watched
the race with an inhuman interest, screaming and yelling, only
to see the horse he had bet everything on come in dead last.
Mitchell was dumbfounded. He made his
way to the track and when he found the priest, he demanded,
"Father, what happened? I've watched you all day. All day you
blessed horses and they won. That last race, you blessed a
horse And he lost. Now I've lost all my savings, and today's
winnings, thanks to you!!"
The priest nodded wisely and said,
"Well, my son.........that's the problem with you Protestants.
You can't tell the difference between a simple blessing and
the Last Rites.

Jokes, My Little
guy sees a sign in front of a house: "Talking Dog for Sale."|
He rings the bell and the owner, a
beautiful blonde comes to the door and tells him the dog is
in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a
black mutt just sitting there.
"You talk?" he asks.
"Sure do." The dog replies.
"So, what's your story?"
The dog looks up and says, "Well, I
discovered my gift of talking pretty young and I wanted to
help the government, so I told the CIA about my gift, and in
no time they had me jetting from country to country, sitting
in rooms with spies and world leaders, because no one figured
a dog would be eavesdropping. I was one of their most
valuable spies eight years running.
"The jetting around really tired me
out, and I knew I wasn't getting any younger and I wanted to
settle down. So I signed up for a job at the airport to do
some undercover security work, mostly wandering near
suspicious characters and listening in. I uncovered some
incredible dealings there and was awarded a batch of medals.
"Had a wife, a mess of puppies, and
now I'm just retired."
The guy is amazed. He goes back in
and asks the blonde what she wants for the dog.
She says, "Ten dollars."
The guy says, "This dog is amazing.
Why on earth are you selling him so cheap?"
"Cause he's a liar. He didn't do any
of that stuff."
