The Catholic Priest and the Baptist Boy

A worldly young Southern Baptist went to the racetrack for the very first time. He saw a priest in the paddock give a horse a blessing. The boy took the horse’s number, placed a small bet and sure enough the horse won. For the next several races, the boy went to the paddock, saw the priest bless a horse, placed a bet and won. On the last race of the day he repeated the routine and bet all his winnings on the anointed horse. Rounding the final turn the horse had a sizable lead, but then he suddenly dropped dead. The young man sought out the priest to complain. "That’s the trouble with you Baptists," said the priest. "You don’t know the difference between a simple blessing and the last rites." Anonymous
