Joke of the Day: 419 Deaf Boys in the Vicarage

There was a
group of boys who believed that they could play a trick on a Born Again Pastor.
During one of the Christmas Seasons, which were noted for doling out gifts to
the disadvantaged or incapacitated members of the society, the 3 boys hatched a
plan; pretending to be deaf and dumb, they approached the Pastor and members of
his family on the Boxing Day to ask for alms.

As they
entered the Vicarage, they made gesticulations and signs to the Pastor to
indicate that they were deaf and dumb. The Pastor signaled to them to sit down
on the upholstery chairs as he collected the envelopes with inscriptions “HELP
THE DEAF TO LIVE WELL” printed on them from each of the boys. Minutes later,
the Pastor invited the boys to have lunch with him on the dining table. As they
stood up and made for the dinning section of the living room, the Pastor
brought 5 pieces of coins from his pocket and threw them on the ceramic tiled
floor. Jus then, by sheer instinct, the boys turned round in the direction of
the sound produced by the coins. The Pastor concluded there and then that the
boys were not deaf.
So, instead
of sitting down with the boys on the dinning table, he made for his telephone
and pretending to be talking to the police, he asked,
“Is that Alapere Police station?”
“Am I speaking to the Divisional
Police Officer?”
He
prodded further, “Please I have 3 criminals
in my house right now and I want you to
send some of your men to my vicarage to arrest them”
After
dropping the telephone receiver, he moved to the dining table to join the boys
as if nothing had happened. He was able to notice that the boys had become fidgety.
The next
minute, the Pastor called his house guard and gave him an order.
“Godwin! Godwin!! Please, release the
dogs and let them roam about in the compound”.
Upon hearing
that, the 3 boys dropped their pieces of cutlery and made for the entrance door
of the Vicarage, running out as fast as their legs could carry them.
