This may come as a surprise to those of you who don’t live in Las Vegas, but there are actually more catholic churches than there are casinos in that city.
Given the number of gamblers in Las Vegas, you probably won’t be surprised to learn that some worshipers at Sunday services will give casino chips rather than cash when the collection basket is passed around the congregation.
Since the members of the congregation get their chips from many different casinos in the city, the churches have devised a method to collect the offerings.
They send all their collected chips to a nearby Franciscan Monastery for sorting.
Then the chips are taken to the casino of origin and cashed in.
This is done by the chip monks.
You didn’t even see it coming, did you?
Yes it’s a bad joke! I’m running out of good ones today, but tomorrow will hopefully see more laughs than groans. Please pass it around and give your friends a good groan too!
