Two friars decide to open a florist shop.  Everyone wants to buy flowers from them so business is quickly booming.

The florist across town sees a huge drop in sales and asks the two friars to close their shop, but they refuse.

A few weeks later the florist again begs them to close because he's having trouble feeding his family.

Once again the friars refuse, so the florist hires Hugh McTaggert.

Hugh is the meanest, toughest thug in town and is asked to "persuade" the friars to close.  When they first refuse, he threatens to beat them up and says he will trash their shop every day that they remain open, so finally, they close.

Once again, this proves that Hugh and only Hugh can prevent florist friars.

That's almost as bad as the "Run florist, Run" joke! LOL

Sue, Tonya and Tom - SO glad y'all liked it. I read that a long time ago and loved it. That kind of play on words I find hilarious. Glad I could make other laugh like I did! :-)
