What do you call someone who takes care of chickens? A chicken tender.

Since I am getting ready to make a home made, from scratch, pizza... Chicken tenders came to mind.  But really it's all about being broken in a car which is something I am happy to say has not happened to me in a very long time.

A man was driving a rental car along a old mountain road in Eastern Europe at night when he started having engine problems

Unable to get a signal on his mobile phone, he saw a lit building not far off and made it there just as the car stalled. Getting out of the car, he knocked on the door. A monk in a brown habit opened the door.

"Good evening, brother!" greeted the monk. "What can I do for you?"
"I'm very sorry to bother, but I'm having trouble with my car and can't seem to get my phone to work. Would you have a landline I could borrow to call for help?" asked the man.

The monastery did have a phone. The man managed to get the car company to send a replacement but it would take a couple of hours to reach. When the monk heard this, he invited the man to stay for dinner.

"Please have a rest." assured the monk. "We're having fish and chips tonight."

The man accepted the offer with thanks and sat down to the best fish and chips he had eaten. Grateful, he asked if he could thank the cook in person. The monk obliged and went into the kitchen to convey his request. Shortly after, another monk walked out.

"Thank you so much for the fantastic meal!" exclaimed the man. "You must be the chip monk."
"You're most welcome but no, that would be him." explained the monk pointing at a third monk who was walking over. "I'm the fish friar."
