The local Priest from the Ohonba district came calling at the Bishop’s Court on a courtesy call on his Lordship. As he was about passing through the gate, he saw a group of the town’s Grammar School boys chatting merrily. The priest decided to see if he could share in the on-going fun with the boys.

“What is going on here, my boys?” The Priest asked
“We are having fun, Pastor” That was the response from one of the boys.
The Priest asked, “Can I share in the jokes?”
“Why not, if not?” One of the rather daring boys said to the local Priest
“Then, let me in” The Priest demand for a piece of the fun
“Sir, we are trying to exchange lies to find out the person who has the biggest and the most valuable lie. Whoever wins will go away with this transistor radio” The daring boy added, showing the transistor radio to the Priest
“Oh, God of Mercy!” exclaimed the Priest. “What is the world turning into? When I was your age, I could not imagine myself telling a lie. Oh, God…!”
“You have won the prize, Pastor” declared the daring boy. “Here is the transistor radio”
“What do you mean?” the Pastor asked, confused as he received the gift grudgingly.
 “Oh! Our School Principal told us last week what led to your expulsion from the Grammar School when you were our age” explained the group leader as the boys took to their heels.
