Cloistered Carrots

The Reverend Mother went before her convent and informed them that she had good news and bad news. “The good news,” she began, “is that a local farmer has donated nearly a hundred pounds of carrots to our commune.”

The other nuns thrilled by their abundance, tittered quietly with joy.

After a moment, one of them asked, “So what’s the bad news, Mother Superior?”

The Reverend Mother furrowed her brow and replied, “He’s already had them peeled and sliced.”
