The Bible Slam: Genesis Chapter 40

While Joseph was in prison, Pharaoh's chief butler and chief baker were tossed into jail.   Both of them have dreams that Joseph interprets for them.

As for the chief butler, Joseph interprets the dream to mean that in three days, Pharaoh would restore him to his position.   Joseph asks the butler to remember him and ask the Pharaoh to let Joseph out of prison.

As for the baker, Joseph interprets the dream to mean the baker would be beheaded and his body hung out for the birds to eat.

Joseph's interpretations of the dreams prove true.   The butler forgets all about Joseph.   (Definitely watch Chelev read this chapter – it's priceless!)

After just three days, the butler sure has a short term memory! Here's the King James version.
