Groaners to Start the Day

Two cannibals meet one day. The first cannibal says, "You know, I just can't seem to get a tender Missionary. I've baked them, I've roasted them, I've stewed them, I've barbecued them, I've tried every sort of marinade. I just cannot seem to get them tender." The second cannibal asks, "What kind of Missionary do you use?" The other replied, "You know, the ones that hang out at that place at the bend of the river. They have those brown cloaks with a rope around the waist and they're sort of bald on top with a funny ring of hair on their heads." "Ah, ha!" the second cannibal replies. "No wonder ... those are friars!"

It seems that when the Holy Angel's Convent was trying to save money, it sent out the nuns' faded clothing to be reconditioned.    Unfortunately, when the things came back they were not of a uniform color.    The businessman who did the work denied responsibility.   He righteously proclaimed that, "Everybody knows that old habits dye hard."
