A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, â€œMy car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?â€ The monk graciously accepts him, feeds him dinner, and even fixes his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, â€œWe canâ€™t tell you. Youâ€™re not a monk.â€ The man is disappointed but thanks them anyway and goes about his merry way. Some years later, the same man breaks down in front of the same monastery. The monk accepts him, feeds him, and even fixes his car. That night, he hears the same strange noise that he had heard years earlier. The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, â€œWe canâ€™t tell you. Youâ€™re not a monk.â€ The man says, â€œAll right, all right. Iâ€™m dying to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound was is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?â€ The monk reply, â€œYou must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of sand pebbles. When you find these numbers, you will become a monk.â€ The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says, â€œI have traveled the earth and have found what you have asked for. There are 145,236,284,232 blades of grass and 231,281,219,999,129,382 sand pebbles on the earth.â€ The monk reply, â€œCongratulations. You are now a monk. We shall now show you the way to the sound.â€ The monk leads the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, â€œThe sound is right behind that door.â€ The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked. He says, â€œReal funny. May I have the key?â€ The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man demands the key to the stone door. The monks give him the key, and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. He demands another key from the monks, who provide it. Behind that door is another door, this one made of sapphire. So it went until the man had gone through doors of emerald, silver, topaz, and amethyst. Finally, the monks say, â€œThis is the last key to the last door.â€ The man is relieved to no end. He unlocks the door, turns the knob, and behind that door he is amazed to find the source of that strange sound. But I canâ€™t tell you what it is because youâ€™re not a monk.

I still don’t like Trump, but as the residents of Savannah said when they heard that Sherman burned Atlanta: “Some things show that there’s good in everyone.”
The flood of Trump-fearing American liberals sneaking across the border into Canada has intensified in the past week, sparking calls for increased patrols to stop the illegal immigration. The Republican Presidential campaign is prompting an exodus among left-leaning citizens who fear theyâ€™ll soon be required to hunt, pray, and live according to conservative ideas about the Constitution.
Canadian border farmers say itâ€™s not uncommon to see dozens of sociology professors, global warming activists, and â€œgreenâ€ energy proponents crossing their fields at night. â€œI went out to milk the cows the other day, and there was a Hollywood producer huddled in the barn,â€ said Southern Manitoba farmer Red Greenfield, whose acreage borders North Dakota. â€œThe producer was cold, exhausted and hungry. He asked me if I could spare a latte and some free-range chicken. When I said I didnâ€™t have any, he left before I even got a chance to show him my screenplay, eh?â€ In an effort to stop the illegal aliens, Greenfield erected higher fences, but the liberals scaled them. He then installed loudspeakers that blared Rush Limbaugh across the fields, but they just keep coming.
Officials are particularly concerned about smugglers who meet liberals near the Canadian border, pack them into electric cars, and drive them across the border where they are simply left to fend for themselves after the battery dies.â€A lot of these people are not prepared for our rugged conditions,â€ an Ontario border patrolman said. â€œI found one carload without a single bottle of Perrier drinking water. They did have a nice little Napa Valley cabernet, though, and some kale chips.â€
When liberals are caught, theyâ€™re sent back across the border, often wailing loudly that they fear assassination from Trump high hairers. Rumors have been circulating about plans being made to build re-education camps where liberals will be forced to drink domestic beer and study the Constitution.
In recent days, liberals have turned to ingenious ways of crossing the border. Some have been disguised as senior citizens taking a bus trip to buy cheap Canadian prescription drugs. After catching a half- dozen young vegans in blue-hair wig disguises, Canadian immigration authorities began stopping buses and quizzing the supposed senior citizens about Perry Como and Rosemary Clooney to prove that they were alive in the â€™50s.
â€œIf they canâ€™t identify the accordion player on The Lawrence Welk Show, we become very suspicious about their age,â€ an official said.Canadian citizens have complained that the illegal immigrants are creating an organic-broccoli shortage, buying up all the Barbara Streisand c.d.â€™s, and renting all the Michael Moore movies. â€œI really feel sorry for American liberals, but the Canadian economy just canâ€™t support them,â€ an Ottawa resident said. â€œHow many art-history majors does one country need?â€
