The Silent Monk


A guy joins a monastery and takes a vow of silence. He's allowed to say two words every seven years.

After the first seven years, the Abbot brings him in and asks for his two words. "Cold floors," he says. The Abbot nods and sends him away.

Seven more years pass. The Abbot brings him back in and asks for his two words. He clears his throat and says, "Bad food." The Abbot nods and send him away.

Seven more years pass. The Abbot brings him in for his two words. "I quit," he says.

"That's not surprising," the Abbot says. "You've done nothing but complain since you got here."
