Yes, but wouldn't their wives object to them sexually assaulting young boys ?

Some of them make Jimmy Sovile look like a ruddy saint ! waggyfinger

Maybe this is the reason.

A young monk arrives at the monastery. He is assigned to help the other monks copying the old canons and laws of the church by hand. However, he notices that all of the monks are copying from copies, not from the original manuscript. So the new monk goes to see the head abbot to question this, pointing out that if someone made even a small error in the first copy, it would never be picked up. In fact, that error would be continued in all of the other subsequent copies.

The head monk said, "we have been copying from copies for centuries, but you make a very valid point, my son."

So off he goes down into the dark caves underneath the monastery where all the original manuscripts are held as archives in a locked vault that hasn't been opened for hundreds of years. Hours go by and nobody sees hide nor hare of the old abbot. The young monk gets a bit worried so goes down to look for him and finds him banging his head against the wall, wailing, "We missed the 'R'. We missed the 'R'." His forehead is bloody and bruised and he is crying uncontrollably.

The young monk asks the old abbot, "whatever's wrong, father?"

With a choking voice, the old abbot replies, "after all these years.....the word was 'Celebrate'!"
