A man entered a silent religious order where you were only allowed to say two words a year, to the Bishop. At the end of his first year the man was asked by the Bishop for his two words. As he had felt hungry often during the year, he replied "More food."
By the end of his second year he had often felt cold so when asked by the Bishop for his two words, he replied "More blankets."
During his third year he came to realise that he was not really suited to a silent order, so when he came before the bishop to utter his two words he told the bishop that he had not been very happy these last three years and was leaving the order.
The Bishop replied, "You may as well go, you've done nothing but complain since you arrived.
