This One's For PDM

The story of the minister and the painter.

One day the local Presbyterian parish council decided the manse should be repainted.  Tenders were called for and a contract given to thee lowest bidder.

The successful contractor thought he would take a lend of these goody good churchies so he bought only half the required amount of paint and topped it up with water,  

When the job was finished it looked pretty good - until the first rainstorm about two weeks later.  It  simply washed off and the minister was furious.  He confronted the errant contractor and berated him about the quality of his work and the absence of his ethics.

The contractor, being a cocky little fellow; said 'Well what the hell am I supposed to do about it?'

The minister roared at him:

"Repaint, repaint and thin no more!!!!!"

Very good Adolf - but I am unsure how it relates to me other than that I occasionally post the odd joke.

Well,that's good enough, isn't it?

Of course, I was following on from the ecclesiastical tone of your last piece. However, never could I surpass your 'in with the ding and out with the dong.'
