Mandela: An Amazing Sculpture

 
Mandela Sculpture 
 
Fifty rods of steel, symbolizing prison bars, so people will always remember the years Mandela was imprisoned. 
The remarkable thing about this artwork is that it is only when you stand at a certain distance (which is marked) that you see him.

Pastors Donkey






 
 
 
 

 
The Pastor's Ass!
 
 
 
 
The Pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

The Pastor was so pleased with the donkey
that he entered it in the race again and it won again.

The local paper read:
PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.

The Bishop was so upset with this kind of
publicity that he ordered the Pastor not to enter
the donkey in another race.
The next day the local paper headline read:

BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.
This was too much for the Bishop so he
ordered the Pastor to get
rid of the donkey.

The Pastor decided to give it to a Nun in a
nearby convent.

The local paper, hearing of the news, posted
the following headline the next day:

NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

The Bishop fainted.

He informed the Nun that she would have to
get rid of the donkey so she
sold it to a farmer for $10.
The next day the paper read:

NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.

This was too much for the Bishop so he
ordered the Nun to buy back
the donkey and lead it to the plains where
it could run wild.
The next day the headlines read:

NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE..

The Bishop was buried the next day.

The moral of the story is . . . being
concerned about public opinion
can bring you much grief and
misery . . even shorten your
life. So be yourself and enjoy life.

Stop worrying about everyone else's ass
and just cover your own !!!
you'll be a lot happier and live longer!
 



If ever the Time should come, when vain and aspiring Men shall possess the highest Seats in Government, our Country will stand in Need of its experienced Patriots to prevent its Ruin.


Samuel Adams, Letter to James Warren, October 24, 1780
