One day, two monks were in the vaults of the monastery going through the old scrolls.
"You see, there are the originals," said the first monk. "All the new scrolls were copied from these."

"Can I see one?"

"Sure. This is one outlines the rules for monkdom . . " All of a sudden, the monk's face turns white and he falls to his knees.

"What? What does it say?"

"Celebrate. IT SAYS CELEBRATE!"

I don't get it. I'm sure it was very funny, but I don't get it.

Ok, as you know jokes are never funny when you have to explain the punchline but here goes. What is a typical vow of the religious? To remain celibate. Well these monks, after all these years had just discovered that in fact someone had made a mistake and they were actually meant to 'celebRate' meaning they did not have to remain celibate all these years. Yep, it never sounds funny when you have to explain it but hopefully now it makes sense
