He started walking and he came to a monastery, where he asked them if he could borrow a mule.
The monks lent him one, and they explained that you had to say “Thank the Lord!” to make it go and “Amen!” to make it stop.
So the man said, “Thank the lord, thank the lord and thank the lord!” and the mule took off!
He was coming to the edge of a cliff and he forgot how to make it stop.
Finally, at the very edge he remembered, “Amen!” and the mule came to a scratching stop.
The guy was so relieved that he shouted in joy. “Thank the Lord!”
You can guess what happened right after.
