A church's bell-ringer passed away.

The position was advertised, and a man with no arms applied for the job. The priest gently suggested that with no arms, he couldn't do the job, but the man convinced him give him at least a try-out.

They climbed the bell tower...and he ran toward the bell, and struck it with his head. The peal resounded over the countryside, and they gave him the job.

The next day he went to ring the bell, tripped, bounced off, and fell to the ground hundreds of feet below.

A man waking below saw this and was horrified. He ran to tell the priest what had happened. "Father, do you know this man?" he asked.

"No," said the priest, "but his face rings a bell."
