The Nun on The Bicycle

(Based on a true story)

 

I met a nun cycling an old bicycle
I told her I loved the old thing,
She said:
“It takes me quicker to God,
But I could do with a new one.”
I told her I religiously collect old bicycles,
So she said:
“You buy me a new one and you can have my old bicycle.”
I said:
“It’s a deal.”
So I bought her a new bicycle; more shiny and quicker.
We both won and got to our respective religions faster.
