A man decides to join a monastic order. The head monk tells him he must take a vow of silence, but once a year he can speak to the head monk. But he is only allowed two words.

After a year, the man appears before the head monk. For an entire year, he has been breaking his back in the vineyards, thinking about what he should say. He says: "bed hard."

"Well, thank you for your input," says the head monk. "We always like to know what is on the minds of our novices. You may go back to work now."

Another year passes and he has grown very thin. He stands before the head monk and says, "food bad."

"Well, thank you for your input," says the head monk. "We always like to know what is on the minds of our novices. You may go back to work now."

Another year passes and he once again is before the head monk. "I quit," he says.

"Well, I'm not surprised," says the head monk. "You've done nothing but complain since you got here."
