The two monks and the young lady

You probably know the one about the two

monks, but I’ll tell it

anyway. They were

walking along one day when they came to

a stream where a young lady was

waiting, hoping that someone

would help her across.

Without hesitating, one

of the monks picked her up and carried

her across, putting her

down safely on the other side.

The two monks continued walking along,

and after some time,

the second one,

unable to restrain himself,

said to the first,

“You know we’re not

allowed to touch women.

Why did you carry that woman

across the stream?”

The first monk replied,

“Put her down.

I did two hours ago.”
