A man is driving down the road and
breaks down near a monastery. He
goes to the monastery, knocks on the
door, and says, My car broke down.
Do you think I could stay the night?
The monks graciously accept
him, feed him dinner, and even
fix his car. As theman tries to
tall asleep, he hears a strange
sound; a sound like no other that
he has ever heard. The next
morning, he asks the monks
what the sound was, but they
say, We can' t tell you because
you' re not a monk.
The man is disappointed but
thanks them anyway and goes
about his merry way. Some
years later, the same man breaks
down in front of the
same monastery.
The monks again accept him,
feed him, and even fix his car..
That night, he hears the same
strange mesmerizing sound that
he had heard years earlier.
The next morning, he asks what
the sound was, but the monks
reply,
We can' t tell you because you' re
not a monk.
The man says, all right, all right.
I' m dying to know.
If the only way I can find out
what that sound was is to
become a monk, how do I
become a monk?
The monks reply, you must
travel the earth and tell us how
many blades of grass there are
and the exact number of sand
pebbles. When you find these
numbers, you will become a
monk.
The man sets about his task.
Some years later, he
returns and knocks on the door
of the monastery. He says, I have
travelled the earth and devoted
my life to the task demanded and
have found what you had asked
for. There are
371, 145, 236, 284, 232 blades of
grass and
231, 281, 219, 999, 129, 382 sand
pebbles on the earth.
The monks reply,
congratulations, you are correct,
and you are now considered a
monk
We shall now show you the way
to the sound.
The monks lead the man to a
wooden door, where the head
monk says, the sound is behind
that door.
The man reaches for the knob,
but the door is locked. He asks,
May I have the key ?
The monks give him the key, and
he opens the door.
Behind the wooden door is
another door made of stone...
The man requests the key to
the stone door.
The monks give him the key, and
he opens it, only to find a door
made of ruby. He demands
another key from the monks, who
provide it. Behind that door is
another door, this one made of
sapphire. And so it went on
until the man had gone through
doors of emerald,...
silver, topaz, and amethyst.
Finally, the monks say, This is
the key to the last door ..
The man is relieved to be at
the end. He unlocks the door,
turns the knob, and behind that
door he is astonished to find
the source of that strange
sound. It is truly an amazing
and unbelievable sight
But I can' t tell you what it is
because you' re not a monk.

Well technically I am, it said you can become a monk when you know how many blades of grass, pebbles, and sand. Well, you gave us the answer. So I'm a monk.

We already know the answer to the monk's test, so we technically ARE monks. So tell us what's behind the damn door!

I've known this story for about 14 years. My version is 25 minutes longer with exquisite detail. People get incredibly pissed at the punchline because of the time commitment in listening to the story and getting involved in trying to figure out the puzzle.  
  
It really is a fine example of trolling. There are a couple other similar stories with unsatisfying endings. I love them so much

It was the boiler ...
#245 to #237 - Rascal (06/20/2011) [-]
You're not a monk. There would be more of both grass and sand due to more grass growing, and erosion turning rocks into sand. u mad?
#282 to #245 - pollux (06/20/2011) [-]
then when he counted all of the blades of grass and returned to the monastery - didn't the grass he counted grow? therefore, he was wrong too.
