Re: Joke Thread
OK, I don't know if I remember this right, but here goes;
Three guys who have just died were standing at the pearly gates. St Peter tells them that cars are used in heaven to travel on Heavens highway. He goes on to tell them that for the married souls, the type of car they are given depends on how faithful they were on earth. So, St Peter asks the first guy,"were you faithful to your spouse"? he answers I was married for 50 years and I was absolutely faithful to the very end. After a quick glance in a book St.Peter says Yes you were, then hands him a set of keys to a brand new Cadillac and said welcome to Heaven.
The second guy was asked the same question. He answered, I too was married for 50 years and for the most part I was faithful, however when I was a young man I cheated once. I asked for my wife's forgiveness and never did it again. After a quick glance St Peter said, You speak the truth but because you weren't completely faithful you do not get a Cadillac. St Peter then handed him the keys to a brand new Chevy Sedan and said welcome to Heaven.
The third guy, Now shaking, approaches St Peter who asks him the same question. In a stuttering voice he says, I as well was married for 50 years and I'm very ashamed St Peter because I cheated on my wife about ten times. But I too asked my wife for forgiveness. St Peter looked in the book and pondered for a moment then said, Yes you weren't very faithful, and even though it was on your death bed you did seek forgiveness from your wife. Because you asked for forgiveness and you were honest you do get to enter heaven but you will drive this used Volkswagen bug. St Peter handed him the keys and said welcome to Heaven.
About two months later the guy in the Cadillac sees the guy in the Volkswagen parked on the side of Heavens highway. He says to himself, "hey I know that Guy". He pulls over and sees him bent over in obvious emotional pain and sorrow. Trying to cheer him up he tells him "hey, don't feel bad, what you drive in Heaven isn't the point. The fact that you made it into Heaven is the real issue. You should be very happy about that, come on, Ligthen up Dude.
The guy answers, no that's not it, I'm very grateful to be in heaven and I like Volkswagen Bugs, I'm bummed because I just passed my wife and she riding a skateboard.
