Monk On A Rope

Monastery ride with high expectations


A monastery was perched high on an isolated cliff, and the only way to reach it was to ride in a basket which was hauled to the top by a team of monks.

The ride up was not for the faint-hearted, and one visitor was looking exceedingly pale by the time he reached the summit. As he stepped trembling from the basket, he couldn’t help noticing that the rope was old and frayed.

“How often do you change that rope?” he asked one of the monks.
The monk thought for a moment and answered brusquely, “Whenever it breaks.”
