A new Monk arrives at a Monastery....


Recommended Posts

A new monk arrives at the monastery and is assigned to help the other


monks in copying the old texts by hand.




He notices that they are copying copies, not the original books. He mentions


to the head monk that, if there's an error in the first copy, then that error


will be continued to all other copies.




The head monk thinks this is a valid observation, so he goes down into the


cellar with one of the copies to check it against the original.




Hours later, the monks hear sobbing coming from the cellar. They find the


old monk leaning over one of the original books crying.


"What's wrong?" one asks.




The old monk sobs, "The word is 'celebrate' ."
