Ring the Bell

Image: bell
Once there was a church that had a bell that no one could ring. One day, a boy came and asked the priest if he could try. So the boy went up into the tower and ran straight into the bell, face-first. The bell tolled loud and clear. The shocked priest gave him the job. But one Sunday, he ran straight toward the bell with his face and missed and fell off the tower and died.
"Congregation," the priest said before the assembled masses. "Does anybody know this boy's name? Because I don't know him, but his face rings a bell."

  1. The next day, the boy's twin brother arrived at the same church asking if he could try and ring the bell. The priest was hesitant, but eventually allowed him to try, but he would not be allowed up into the belfry. The boy agreed and made his way to the base of the tower and began to pull on the rope. After some vigorous pulling, the boy had the bell chiming away and he was riding the rope up and down. Suddenly, he became tangled and the rope wrapped around his neck and strangled him.

    Shocked for the second time in as many days, the priest asked the congregation if anyone knew THIS boy's name because he didn't know him, although he was a dead ringer of the boy that was here yesterday...
