Arriving at his church one morning a minister finds a dead donkey in the church grounds. He calls the police, but since there’s no sign of foul play they refer him to the public health department. The health officials tell him since there’s no obvious health threat he should call the sanitation department. The sanitation manager says he can’t collect a dead donkey without authorisation from the mayor.

The minister is reluctant to call the mayor who’s notoriously bad-tempered but realises he has no choice. The mayor is every bit as grumpy as the minister had feared.

“What are you calling me for?” he bellows. “I’ve got better things to do with my time than to worry about blasted donkeys! Anyway, I thought it was your job to bury the dead.”

“Yes, mayor,” the minister calmly responds, “it’s indeed my job to bury the dead but I always like to notify the next of kin first.”
