Piety and Gambling…
This may come as a surprise to those of you not living in Las Vegas, but there are more Catholic Churches there than Casinos… And so, as expected… some worshippers at Services Sunday Mornings will give on hand Casino Chips instead of dollars when the Basket is passed around at service’s end…
Since the Churches get Chips from all of the different Casinos, the Churches have devised a unique sorting and repayment method for the collected offerings… All of the collected chips are sent to the nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting and then individual cashing in at the various Casino’s all over Las Vegas, and indeed, in Nevada, as the different Casino chips mount up.
This is done by the Chip Monks…
A blonde lady motorist was about two hours from San Diego when a man whose truck had broken down flagged her down……
The man walked up to the car and asked:
“Are you going to San Diego?”
“Sure,” answered the blonde, “do you need a lift?”
“Not for me. I’ll be spending the next three hours fixing my truck.
My problem is I’ve got two chimpanzees in the back that have to be taken to the San Diego Zoo. They’re a bit stressed already so I don’t want to keep them on the road all day. Could you possibly take them to the zoo for me?
I’ll give you $100 for your trouble.”
“I’d be happy to,” said the blonde.
So the two chimpanzees were ushered into the back seat of the blonde’s car and carefully strapped into their seat belts, and off they went.
Five hours later, the truck driver was driving through the heart of San Diego when suddenly he was horrified!
There was the blonde lady walking down the street, holding hands with the two chimps, much to the amusement of a big crowd.
With a screech of brakes he pulled off the road and ran over to the blonde.
“What are you doing here?” he demanded, “I gave you $100 to take these chimpanzees to the zoo!”
“Yes, I know you did,” said the blonde, “But we had money left over so now we’re going to Sea World.”
