Wisdom of the World - week 114
Pause for a smile
Lost on a rainy night, a nun stumbles across a monastery and requests shelter. Fortunately she is just in time for dinner and was treated to the best fish and chips she’s ever had.
After dinner she goes into the kitchen to thank the chefs. She is met by two brothers. ‘Hello, I’m Brother Michael and this is Brother Charles’.
‘I’m very pleased to meet you,’ said the nun. ‘I just wanted to thank you for a wonderful dinner. The fish and chips were the best I’ve ever tasted. Out of curiosity, who cooked what?’
Brother Charles replied, ‘Well I’m the fish friar’.
She turned to the other Brother and says, ‘Then you must be - ?’
‘Yes, I’m the chip monk’.
