A Whiner

At a monastery high in the mountains, the monks have a rigid vow of silence. Only at Christmas can the monk speak, and then only two words, and only to the head monk.

On his first Christmas there, Brother Thomas is allowed to speak and he says, "More Blankets" Silence ensues for 365 days.

The next Christmas, Brother Thomas speaks to the head monk again, and says "More Food".

Once again, silence for 366 days (it's leap year). The following Christmas, Brother Thomas speaks to the head monk and says, "I'm leaving."

The head monk responded "Good, you've done nothing but bitch since you've got here.
