It's the Groaner of the Week!!!!!!!!!!!

I was digging through the archives and found this incredibly horrendous specimen. If y'all don't grooooaaannnn, I'll be astounded!!!!! Enjoy!!!!!!!!!

Two men contracted to paint a small community church. Being very frugal (read: cheap), they pinched and scraped to spend the absolute minimum on materials. Then, when they were only partway through the job, they determined that they did not, after all, have enough paint to complete the job.

Not wishing to spend any more money if they didn't absolutely have to, they decided they would just dilute the water-based paint they were using so that it would last longer. They did this a couple more times before they finished, which caused striping on the church as the paint got lighter each time it was thinned. The painters had just about reached the top of the steeple when, suddenly, the sky darkened, and the rain began to pour heavily. As the paint streamed down the sides of the church, a voice boomed from the heavens:

"Repaint, you thinners! Repaint, and thin no more!"

Don't say I didn't warn you!!!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!!!!!
