THE HUNCHBACK

AN IRISH WOMAN WAS BAKING BREAD. HER HUSBAND CAME HOME ON NIGHT
AND STATED THAT SHE WOULDN'T FINISH HER TASK BY 12 MIDNIGHT. SHE
SAID, IF THE DEVIL COMES AND STANDS IN THIS DOOR, I'M GOING TO
FINISH THIS BREAD TONIGHT} WHILE SHE WAS BAKING, A LOG FROM THE
FIREPLACE FLEW OUT AND HIT HER ON HER BACK. THAT IS HOW THE
HUNCHED BACK CAME TO BE.
