    Fw: Joke of the day



    > After Quasimodo's death, the bishop of the Cathedral of Notre Dame sent
    word through the streets of Paris that a new bell ringer was needed.
    >
    > The bishop decided that he would conduct the interviews personally and
    went up into the belfry to begin the screening process. After observing several applicants demonstrate their skill, he had decided to call it a day. Just then, an armless man approached him and announced that he was there to apply for the bell ringer's job.

    > The bishop was incredulous. "You have no arms!"
    > "No matter," said the man. "Observe!"
    > And he began striking the bells with his face, producing a beautiful
    melody on the carillon. The bishop listened in astonishment; convinced he had finally found a replacement for Quasimodo. But suddenly, rush! ing forward to strike a bell, the armless man tripped and plunged headlong out of the belfry window to his death in the street below. The stunned bishop rushed to his side. When he reached the street, a crowd had gathered around the fallen figure, drawn by the beautiful music they had heard only moments before.
    >
    > As they silently parted to let the bishop through, one of them asked,
    > "Bishop, who was this man?"
    >
    > "I don't know his name," the bishop sadly replied,
