A man joins a monastery and takes a vow of silence. He is only allowed to say two words every Christmas.

Every day, they grow their own food and maintain the monastery, all while silently praying.

On the first Christmas, he goes to the abbot and says, “Food’s cold.” The abbot nods and blesses him.

On the second Christmas, he tells the abbot, “Work’s hard.” The abbot nods and blesses him.

On the third Christmas, he says to the abbot, “I quit.”

The abbot replies, “I knew it! You’ve been bitching ever since you got here!”
