A nun was sitting at the airport, waiting for her flight to Chicago.
She looked over in the corner and saw one of those weight machines that tells your fortune and thought to herself, “I’ll give it a try and see what it tells me.”
She went over to the machine, stepped on the scale and put a quarter in. Out came a card that read, “You are a nun. You weight 128 pounds, and you are going to Chicago.”
The nun sat back down and told herself that the machine probably gives the same card to everyone. The more she thought about it, the more curious she got. She kept staring back at the weight machine. She then decided to try it again. She went back to the machine and inserted another quarter. Out came a card that read: “You are a nun. You weight 128 pounds. You are going to Chicago. And you’re going to play a fiddle.”
The nun says to herself, “I know that is wrong. I have never played a musical instrument even once in my life.” Then sat back down at the boarding area.
From out of nowhere a man came over and sat down, putting his fiddle case on the seat between them. Without thinking, she opened the man’s case, took out the fiddle, and started playing beautiful music.
Surprised at what she had done, she looked over at the machine thinking, “this is incredible! I’ve got to try this again.”
Back to the machine she went, put in another quarter, and another card came out. It read, “You are a nun. You weight 128 pounds. You are going to Chicago and you’re going to ‘break wind’.” Now she knows the machine is wrong as she thought to herself, “I’ve never broken wind in public a single time in my life!”
While getting off the machine, she slipped. And as she was straining to keep herself from falling to the floor, she broke wind.
Absolutely stunned, she sat back down and looked at the machine. She said to herself, “This is truly remarkable. I’ve got to try this again.”
After a couple of minutes, she went back to the machine, put in another quarter, and another card came out. “You are a nun. You weight 128 pounds. You have fiddled and farted around and missed your flight to Chicago.”
