Humorous story of a chaplain and his horse

“A chaplain recently assigned to the field sought to improve his condition by commandeering a horse from a Virginia farmer. He then joined his regimental commander, who promptly asked him where he got the horse.

‘Down the road there,’ the chaplain replied.

Angrily the colonel told the chaplain to return the horse.

Protesting strongly, the chaplain sought to justify what he had done by stating: ‘Why Jesus Christ, when He was on earth, took an ass whereon to ride to Jerusalem.’

The colonel snapped back: ‘You are not Jesus Christ; that is not an ass whereon to ride to Jerusalem; and the sooner you restore that horse to its owner, the better it will be for you.”
