A man is driving down the road and breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says.

"My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?" The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, and even fix 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, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

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 monks accept him, feed him, and even fix his car. That night he hears the strange noise that he heard years earlier. The next morning, he asks what it is, but the monks reply, "We can't tell you, you're not a monk"

The man says "all right, all right. I'm dying to know. If the only way I can find out what that sound is to become a monk, how do I become a monk?"

The monks reply, "You 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."

The man sets about his task. Forty-five years later, he returns and knocks on the door of the monastery. He says "I have travelled 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."

The monks reply "congratulations, you are now a monk. We can now show you the way to the sound." The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says. "The sound is right behind that door." The man reaches for the knob, but the door is locked, he says, "Ha-ha, may I have the key?"

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 has gone through doors of emeralds, silver, topaz and amethyst.

Finally the monks say. "This is the key to the last door." 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 can't tell you what it is because you're not a monk.

Yes Jem, even I don't know what it is.
Can I become a monk then, please? I am so in suspense now I would become a monk to find out the source of this strange sound.

Anyone else agree with me?
Loud Groan. Louder groan. Even louder groan. It was someone snoring who had broken down and wanted a bed for the night. Maybe.
I wasnt a old deep fat friar was it ?
