Joke of the Day: 419 Deaf Boys in the Vicarage

There was a group of boys who believed that they could play a trick on a Born Again Pastor. During one of the Christmas Seasons, which were noted for doling out gifts to the disadvantaged or incapacitated members of the society, the 3 boys hatched a plan; pretending to be deaf and dumb, they approached the Pastor and members of his family on the Boxing Day to ask for alms.

As they entered the Vicarage, they made gesticulations and signs to the Pastor to indicate that they were deaf and dumb. The Pastor signaled to them to sit down on the upholstery chairs as he collected the envelopes with inscriptions “HELP THE DEAF TO LIVE WELL” printed on them from each of the boys. Minutes later, the Pastor invited the boys to have lunch with him on the dining table. As they stood up and made for the dinning section of the living room, the Pastor brought 5 pieces of coins from his pocket and threw them on the ceramic tiled floor. Jus then, by sheer instinct, the boys turned round in the direction of the sound produced by the coins. The Pastor concluded there and then that the boys were not deaf.
So, instead of sitting down with the boys on the dinning table, he made for his telephone and pretending to be talking to the police, he asked,
“Is that Alapere Police station?”
“Am I speaking to the Divisional Police Officer?” He prodded further, “Please I have 3 criminals in my house right now and I want you to send some of your men to my vicarage to arrest them”
After dropping the telephone receiver, he moved to the dining table to join the boys as if nothing had happened. He was able to notice that the boys had become fidgety.
The next minute, the Pastor called his house guard and gave him an order.
“Godwin! Godwin!! Please, release the dogs and let them roam about in the compound”.
Upon hearing that, the 3 boys dropped their pieces of cutlery and made for the entrance door of the Vicarage, running out as fast as their legs could carry them.
