HILARIOUS JOKES AND HUMOR ARCHIVES
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
The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even
fix his car. As the man falls asleep that night, he hears a
strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the
"We can't tell you. You're not a monk" they respond.
The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and continues
on his trip.
Several years later the same man breaks down in front of the
same monastery. The monks again accept him, feed him, and
even fix his car. That night, he hears the same strange
noise that he had heard years earlier.
The next morning he again asks what it is, and again 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 the source of that sound is to
become a monk, tell me how do I become a monk?"
"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," they reply.
The man sets about his task. Many years later he returns and
knocks on the door of the monastery. "I have traveled the
earth and have found what you asked for. There are
145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382
sand pebbles on the earth."
"Congratulations!" the monks reply. "You are now a monk. We
will now show you the way to the sound."
The monks proceed to lead the man to a wooden door, where
the head monk says, "The sound is behind that door."
The man reaches for the knob, but cannot open it because the
door is locked.
"Really funny," he says, "May I have the key please?"
The monks give him the key and he opens the door. Behind the
wooden door is another door made of stone. The monks give
him the key to this door too, and he opens it-only to find a
door made of ruby. He asks for, and receives another key
from the monks. But behind that door is another door, this
one made of sapphire. On and on this went until the man had
gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, and amethyst.
Finally the man is relieved to hear the monks say, "This is
the last key to the last door."
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 monk.
Are you searching for that elusive door to unlock the source
of life for you? Don't seek any farther than Jesus Christ!
"Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will
sup with him, and he with me. To him that overcometh will I
grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame,
and am set down with my Father in His throne."
