A story about horses

Once upon a time, a question was sent to the Theological Collage, asking how
many teeth were to be found in a horse's mouth.

The Savants of the collage, which included the greatest religious minds of the time, searched through all of the holy books, the writings of the saints, the works of the great theologians of the past, but could not find the answer to this question.

While this great tumult of research was going on, a young monk, who's job was to sweep the rooms, overheard the problem being discussed. He went humbly up to the great men and asked them, "My lords, why do you not look into a horse's mouth and count the teeth?"

With a roar, the scholars drove the young monk from the room with blows and kicks.

Shortly after, they published their findings, that the answer to this question was a mystery and not to be known, as holy writ was silent on the matter.
