Funny Jokes – Horse Race
Bubba was from Alabama and was a hard-shell Southern Baptist. He
loved to sneak away to the race track. One day he was there betting
on the ponies and losing his shirt when he noticed a priest step out
onto the track and bless the forehead of one of the horses lining up
for the 4th race. Lo and behold, this horse — a very long shot —
won the race. Bubba was most interested to see what the priest did
the next race.
Sure enough, he watched the priest step out onto the track as the
horses for the fifth race lined up, and placed a blessing on the
forehead of one of the horses. Bubba made a beeline for the window
and placed a small bet on the horse.
Again, even though another long shot, the horse the priest had
blessed won the race. Bubba collected his winning and anxiously
waited to see which horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for
the 6th race. The priest showed, blessed a horse, Bubba bet on it,
and it won! Bubba was elated!!!
As the day went on, the priest continued blessing one of the horses,
and it always came in first. Bubba began to pull in some serious
money, and by the last race, he knew his wildest dreams were going
to come true. He made a quick stop at the ATM, withdrew big money
and awaited the priest’s blessing that would tell him which horse to
True to his pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before
the last race and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one
of the horses.
Bubba bet every cent, and watched the horse come in dead last. He was
dumbfounded. He made his way to the track and when he found the
priest, he demanded, “What happened, Father? All day you blessed
horses and they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he
lost. “Now I’ve lost my savings, thanks to you!!” he complained when
he met the priest on the way out of the racetrack.
The priest nodded wisely and said, “That’s the problem with you
Protestants… you can’t tell the difference between a simple
blessing and the Last Rites.”
