    A new monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to
    help the other monks in copying the old texts by hand.
    He notices, however, that they are copying from
    copies, not the original manuscripts. So, the new monk
    goes to the head monk to ask him about this. He points
    out that if there were an error in the first copy,
    that error would be continued in all of the other

    The head monk says, "We have been copying from the
    copies for centuries,
    but you make a good point, my son." So, he goes down
    into the cellar with one of the copies to check it
    against the original.

    Hours go by and nobody sees him. So, one of the monks
    goes downstairs to look for him. He hears sobbing
    coming from the back of the cellar, and finds the old
    monk leaning over one of the original books crying.

    He asks the old monk what's wrong, and in a choked
    voice came the reply...

    "The word is "celebrate."
