The wise old Mother Superior was dying. The nuns gathered around her bed, hoping to make her comfortable. They gave her some warm milk, but she refused it. As one nun returned the still full glass of milk to the kitchen, she remembered that the previous Christmas they had received a bottle of whiskey as a gift. She dumped out some milk, poured in a generous helping, and returned to Mother Superior's bedside. Mother took a little sip, then a little more, and soon polished off the whole glass. "Mother," said the nuns, "give us some wisdom before you pass!" She looked up and said, "Don't sell that cow!"
