Jewish Bookie Loses Money : A Priest Explains Everything (Humor)

Take a break again for more good stuff to lighten the burdens of the day.

The Jewish Bookie
A Jewish bookie was at the races playing the ponies and losing his
shirt. 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, that horse - a long shot - won the race. 
Next race, as the horses lined up, the Priest stepped onto
the track. Sure enough, he blessed one of the horses. 
The bookie made a beeline for a betting window and placed a
small bet on the horse. Again, even though it was another
long shot, the horse won the race. He collected his
winnings, and anxiously waited to see which horse the Priest
would bless next.
He bet big on it, and it won.  
As the races continued the Priest kept blessing horses, and
each one ended up winning. The bookie was elated. He made a
quick dash to the ATM, withdrew all his savings, and awaited
for the Priest's next blessing that would tell him which horse to bet on.
True to his pattern, the Priest stepped onto the track for
the last race and blessed the forehead of an old nag that
was 100/1. This time the priest blessed the eyes, ears, and
hooves of the old nag. The bookie knew he had a winner and
bet every cent he had on the old nag. He watched dumbfounded
as the old nag pulled up lame and couldn't even finish the race. 
In a state of shock, he went to the track area where the
Priest was standing. Confronting him, he exclaimed,
"Father! What happened? All day long you blessed horses
and they all won. Then in the last race, the horse you
blessed never even had a chance.
Now, thanks to you I've lost all my money!"
The Priest nodded wisely and with sympathy. "You
aren't Catholic are you my son?"
I'm Jewish."
"That's the problem", said the Priest,
"you couldn't tell the difference between a blessing and last rites."
