*Leroy** was from Alabama, and was a good ol' Southern Baptist. He

loved to sneak away to the race track. One day he was there betting

on the ponies, and losing his shirt, when he noticed a priest step

out onto the track and bless the forehead of one of the horses

lining up for the 4th race. Lo and behold, this horse -- a very long

shot -- won the race. *

*Leroy was most interested to see what the priest did in the next

race. Sure enough, he watched the priest step out onto the track as

the horses for the fifth race lined up, and placed a blessing on the

forehead of one of the horses. *

*Leroy *made a beeline for the window and placed a small bet on the

horse. Again, even though another long shot, the horse the priest

had blessed won the race.

*Leroy *collected his winnings and anxiously waited to see which

horse the priest bestowed his blessing on for the 6th race.

*The priest showed, blessed a horse, Leroy *bet on it, and it won!

*Leroy *was elated! As the day went on, the priest continued

blessing one of the horses, and it always came in first.

*Leroy *began to pull in some serious money, and by the last race,

he knew his wildest dreams were going to come true. He made a quick

stop at the ATM, withdrew big money and awaited thepriest's

blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on. Trueto his

pattern, the priest stepped out onto the track before the last race

and blessed the forehead, eyes, ears and hooves of one of the horses.

*Leroy *bet every cent, and watched the horse come in dead last. He

was dumbfounded.

*He made his way to the track, and when he found the priest, he

demanded, "What happened, Father? All day you blessed horses and

they won. The last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now I've

lost all my savings, thanks to you!" *

*The priest nodded wisely and said, "That's the problem with you

Protestants....... you can't tell the difference between a simple

blessing and the Last Rites."*
