The result of making copies from copies ....  

 

The new monk is assigned to helping the other monks in copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand.   He notices, however, that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript.   So, the new monk goes to the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up!   In fact, that error would be continued in all of the subsequent copies.

The head monk, says: "We have been copying from the copies for centuries, but you make a good point, my son"   Then, he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years.

Hours go by and nobody sees the old abbot.  

So, the young monk gets worried and goes down to look for him.   He sees him banging his head against the wall and wailing.  "We missed the R!"  "We missed the R!!"  "We missed the damn R!!!"   His forehead is all bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.   The young monk asks the old abbot: "What's wrong, father?" With a choking voice, the old abbot replies: "The word was.........CELEBRATE"

Doc, it was passed on to me by a friend in an email.

Laughed my you know what off reading it the first time.  Then after reading it again I thought to myself, nah, that would not of happened, they would have surely checked it over, or did they.  Makes you wonder sometimes, well atleast it does me.

Quoting ElanaAhova,

Actually it has about as much chance as being true as anything else in life.......well with the exception of my father ever thinking I learn anything in life.
