Steeple Paint

The church steeple in Port Gibson is very high, and was being painted on a rather hot day.  The painter was about half-way down and, as the steeple was widening out, was taking more and more paint.  The painter felt that he might not have enough paint to finish.  Since he was hot and tired, and did not care to make another trip to the ground, he decided to stretch the amount of paint by adding some paint thinner to it.

When finished, he lowered himself to the ground and went about cleaning up.  Then he looked up to see the results of his work and noted that the area with the thinned paint looked decidedly different.  He was pondering about what to do about it when the sky turned dark and there was a lightning flash and loud thunderclap. 

Then in a loud, booming voice from the sky came the words, "REPAINT AND THIN NO MORE !"
