His Face Rings a Bell
A 200-year-old church held an anniversary celebration when calamity struck. The bell ringer arrived, the sexton took him to the bell tower, some 150 feet above them. Just as they reached the landing, the bell ringer tripped and fell face first into the bell. Bo-o-o-o-ong! Dazed by the blow, the bell ringer stumbled backward onto the landing. The railing broke loose and he fell to the ground. Miraculously, he was unhurt—only stunned—but they took him to the doctor. He asked, “Do you know this man’s name?” “No,” the sexton replied, “but his face sure rings a bell.” (Jerry Zenk - Milwaukee Sentinel).
