Other than lending his name to the product, what does a Broadway / West End theatrical producer have to do with insurance?

I just want to know what it would cost me to have a fully comprehensive insurance on a 1970 Aston Martin.

And I'm not interested in nude ladies.

@Paul: Your link isn't working well. Click Here

I lucked out and missed this one. Monopoly was fun but my family tended to play cards. Scat, Knock, Canasta, Black Jack, etc.

@BrokeDad - Tell it to The Bishop!

@KDP .. no Bishop .. agnostic here .. hehe

A preacher wanted to raise money for his church and on being told that there was a fortune in horse racing, decided to purchase a horse and enter it in the races. However, at the local auction, the going price for horses was so high that he ended up buying a donkey instead. He figured that since he had it, he might as well go ahead and enter it in the races. To his surprise, the donkey came in third!

The next day the local paper carried this headline: PREACHER'S ASS SHOWS. The preacher was so pleased with the donkey that he entered it in the race again, and this time it won. The paper read: PREACHER'S ASS OUT IN FRONT. The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity that he ordered the preacher not to enter the donkey in another race. The paper headline read: BISHOP SCRATCHES PREACHER'S ASS. This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the preacher to get rid of the donkey. The preacher decided to give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The paper headline the next day read: NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN. The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a farmer for $10.00.

The next day the headline read: NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.00. This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the nun to buy back the donkey, lead it to the plains, and let it go. Next day, the headline in the paper read: NUN ANNOUNCES HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE. The Bishop was buried the next day.

@Paul: Ok, today it's working for me! Yesterday, not so much.

@BD: IIRC that joke is R105 in the prisoner's joke book, isn't it?
