once was a 98-year-old Irish nun, who lived out her days in her convent in
County Tipperary. She was very frail and her health was beginning to fail. So
her doctor prescribed her a shot of whisky three times a day to "fortify"
her, as he put it. However, the nun would hear none of it, saying that she
hadn't had even the tiniest drop of alcohol throughout her whole life and
certainly wouldn't give in to the devil's worldly temptations now, at the end of
her days. But the mother superior found a way out of the dilemma. She knew that
the elderly sister loved milk. So she instructed the kitchen to spike the milk
three times a day. Eventually, the pious nun approached her final hour. As
several sisters gathered around her at her bedside, the mother superior asked if
she wanted to leave them any words of wisdom. "Oh, yes." she replied.
"Never sell that cow!"
