Wednesday Morning Funny 321

A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a
monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the
door, and says, "My car broke down. Do you think I
could stay the night?"

The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even
fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears
a strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks
what the sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you.
You're not a monk."

The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and
goes about his merry way.

Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of
the same monastery. The monks accept him, feed him,
even fix his car. That night, he hears the same
strange noise that he had heard years earlier.

The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks
reply, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

The man says, "All right, all right. I'm dying to
know. If the only way I can find out what that sound
was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?"

The monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell
us how many blades of grass there are and the exact
number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers,
you will become a monk."

The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later,
he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He
says, "I have traveled the earth and have found what

of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the

The monks reply, "Congratulations. You are now a monk.
We shall now show you the way to the sound."

The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the
head monk says, "The sound is right behind that door."

The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked.
He says, "Real funny. may I have the key?" The monks
give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the
wooden door is another door made of stone. The man
demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him
the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of
ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who
provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one
made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone
through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, amethyst...
Finally, the monks say, "This is the last key to the
last door." The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks
the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is
amazed to find the source of that strange sound.

But I can't tell you what it is because you're not a
