Father Willis Anecdote

Saw this on another list, and thought it might amuse.....

 

One of the anecdotes about the legendary 'Father' Willis telling an acquaintance how to sell a (pipe) organ goes:

 

"First you find a church willing to pay half.

Then you find a donor willing to pay half.

Then you find another donor willing to pay half.

Then you ensure that the two donors never, ever, meet."

 

 

Of course, such a thing would never happen, would it??

The modern version:

 

-First the organist looks for a builder who accept to be paid half.

 

Who he?
