    One day while he was at the
    track betting on the ponies and nearly losing his shirt, Mitch noticed a
    priest who stepped out onto the track and blessed the forehead of one of
    the horses lining up for the 4th race.
    Lo and behold, that horse - a
    very long shot - won the race.
    Mitch was most interested to
    see what the priest did the next race. Sure enough, the priest
    stepped out onto the track as the 5th race horses lined up, and placed a
    blessing on the forehead of one of the horses.
    Mitch made a beeline for the
    window, and placed a small bet on the horse.
    Again, even though it was
    another long shot, the horse the priest had blessed won the
    race.
    Mitch collected his
    winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the priest would bless
    for the 6th race.

    Mitch was elated! As
    the day went on, the priest continued blessing horses, and they always
    came in first.
    Mitch 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 his
    savings, and awaited the priest's blessing that would tell him which
    horse to bet on.
    True to 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. Mitch bet
    every cent, and watched the horse come in dead last. Mitch was
    dumbfounded.

    He made his way to the
    track, and when he found the priest, he demanded, "What happened,
    Father? All day long you blessed horses and they won. The
    last race, you blessed a horse and he lost. Now, thanks to you
    I've lost all my savings!!"
    The priest nodded wisely and
    said, "That's the problem with Protestants! You can't tell the
    difference between a simple blessing and the Last Rites!
