HEAVEN'S ENTRANCE EXAM
A man dies and goes to heaven. Of course, St.
Peter meets him at the pearly gates. St. Peter says, "Here's how it works. You need
1000points to make it into heaven. You tell me all the good things you've done, and I give
you a certain number of points for each item, depending on how good it was. When you reach
1000 points, you get in."
"Okay," the man says, "I was
married to the same woman for 50 year end never cheated on her, even in my heart."
"That's wonderful," says St. Peter,
"that's worth three points!"
"Three points?" he says. "Well, I
attended church all my life and supported its ministry with my tithe and service."
"Terrific!" says St. Peter.
"That's certainly worth a point."
"One point? I started a soup kitchen in my
city and worked in a shelter for homeless veterans."
"Fantastic, that's good for two more points,
" he says.
"Two points!" the man cries. "At
this rate the only way I get into heaven is by the grace of God.
"Come on in!"
The only survivor of a
shipwreck washed up on a small, uninhabited island. He prayed feverishly for God to rescue
him, and every day he scanned the horizon for help, but none seemed forthcoming.Exhausted,
he eventually managed to build a little hut out of driftwood to protect him from the
elements, and to store his few possessions.But then one day, after scavenging for food, he
arrived home to find his little hut in flames, the smoke rolling up to the sky.The worst
had happened; everything was lost. He was stung with grief and anger. "God, how could
you do this to me!" he cried.
Early the next day, however, he was awakened by
the sound of a ship that was approaching the island. It had come to rescue him."How
did you know I was here?" asked the weary man of his rescuers."We saw your smoke
signal," they replied.Remember next time your little hut is burning to the ground--it
just may be a smoke signal that summons the grace of God.
As you are receiving my note
by e-mail, it's wise to remember how easily this wonderful technology can be misused,
sometimes unintentionally, with serious consequences. Consider the case of the Illinois
man who left the snow-filled streets of Chicago for a vacation in Florida. His wife was on
a business trip and was planning to meet him there the next day.
When he reached his hotel, he decided to send his
wife a quick e-mail. Unable to find the scrap of paper on which he had written her e-mail
address, he did his best to type it in from memory. Unfortunately, he missed one letter
and his note was directed instead to an elderly preacher's wife whose husband had passed
away only the day before.
When the grieving widow checked her e-mail, she
took one look at the at monitor, let out a piercing scream, and fell to the floor in a
dead faint. At the sound, her family rushed into the room and saw this note on the screen:
DEAREST WIFE: JUST GOT CHECKED IN. EVERYTHING PREPARED
FOR YOUR ARRIVAL TOMORROW. P.S. SURE IS
HOT DOWN HERE
Dear IRS,Enclosed is my 1998
Tax Return & payment. Please take note of the attached article from the USA Today
newspaper. In the article, you will see that the Pentagon is paying $171.50 for hammers
and NASA has paid $600.00 for a toilet seat.Please find enclosed four toilet seats (value
$2,400) and six hammers (value $1,029). This brings my total payment to $3,429.00.
Please note the overpayment of $22.00 and apply
it to the "Presidential Election Fund," as noted on my return. Might I suggest
that you send the above mentioned fund a "1.5 inch screw". (See attached
article...HUD paid $22.00 for a 1.5 inch Phillips Head Screw.)It has been a pleasure to
pay my tax bill this year, and I look forward to paying it again next year. I just saw an
article about the Pentagon and "screwdrivers."
A man and a woman who have
never met before find themselves in the same sleeping carriage of a train. After the
initial embarrassment, they both manage to get to sleep; the woman in the top bunk, the
man in the lower.
In the middle of the night the woman leans over
and says, "I'm sorry to bother you but I'm awfully cold and I was wondering if you
could possibly pass me another blanket."
The man leans out and, with a glint in his eye,
says, "I've got a better idea... let's pretend we're married."
"Why not," giggles the woman.
"Good," he replies, "Get your own
Ed finally decides to take a vacation. He books
himself on a Caribbean cruise and proceeds to have the time of his life --until the boat
He found himself swept up on the shore of an
island with no other people, no supplies... Nothing. Only bananas and coconuts.
After about four months, he is lying on the beach
one day when the most gorgeous woman he has ever seen rows up to him. In disbelief, he
asks her, "Where did you come from? How did you get here?"
"I rowed from the other side of the
island," she says. "Islander here when my cruise ship sank."
"Amazing," he says. "You were
really lucky to have a rowboat wash-up with you."
"Oh, this?" replies the woman. "I
made the rowboat out of raw material I found on the island; the oars were whittled from
gum tree branches; I wove the bottom from palm branches; and the sides and stern came from
a Eucalyptus tree."
"But-but, that's impossible," stutters
Ed. "You had no tools or hardware. How did you manage?"
"Oh, that was no problem," replies the
woman. "On the south side of the island, there is a very unusual strata of alluvial
rock exposed. I found if I fired it to a certain temperature in my kiln, it melted into
forgeable ductile iron. I used that for tools and used the tools to make the
Ed is stunned. "Let's row over to my
place," she says. After a few minutes of rowing, she docks the boat at a small wharf.
As Ed looks onto shore, he nearly falls out of the boat. Before him is a stone walk
leading to an exquisite bungalow painted in blue and white.
While the woman ties up the rowboat with an
expertly woven hemp rope,he could only stare ahead, dumbstruck.As they walk into the
house, she says casually, "It's not much, but I call it home. Sit down please; would
you like to have a drink?"
"No, no thank you," he says, still
dazed. "Can't take anymore coconut juice."
"It's not coconut juice," the woman
replies. "I have a still.How about a Pina Colada?" Trying to hide his continued
he accepts, and they sit down on her couch to
After they have exchanged their stories, the
woman announces,"I'm going to slip into something more comfortable. Would you like to
take a shower and shave? There is a razor upstairs in the cabinet in the bathroom."
No longer questioning anything, Ed goes into the
bathroom.There, in the cabinet, is a razor made from a bone handle. Two shells honed to a
hollow ground edge are fastened on to its end inside of a swivel mechanism.
"WOW! This woman is amazing," he muses,
"What next?"When he returns, she greets him wearing nothing but
vines-strategically positioned-and smelling faintly of gardenias. She beckons for him to
sit down next to her.
"Tell me," she begins suggestively,
slithering closer to him, "We've been out here for a really long time. You've been
lonely.There's something I'm sure you really feel like doing right now,something you've
been longing for all these months. You know..." She stares into his eyes.
He can't believe what he's hearing: "You
mean---", he swallows excitedly, "I can check my e-mail from here....?"
A three-year-old went with his
dad to see a litter of kittens. On returning home, he breathlessly informed his mother

grocery store and began putting away the groceries. The boy opened a box of animal
crackers and spread them all over the table."What are you doing?" his mother
asked."The box says you can't eat them if the seal is broken," the boy
explained. "I'm looking for the seal."
"Can people predict the future with
cards?" said one little boy to another. "My mother can," said the other
boy. "Really?" "Yes, she takes one look at my report card and can tell me
exactly what will happen when my Dad gets home."
A father was reading Bible stories to his young
son. He read, "The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the
city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt."His son asked, "What

Subject: The Clock. Hillary
Clinton died and went to heaven. She met St. Peter at the Pearly Gates and noticed there
were clocks everywhere. She asked St. Peter what they were for. He replied, "Each
clock is assigned to a person on earth. Every time a person tells a lie, one second clicks
off." He went on to say, "This clock belongs to an honest woman in India, hardly
anytime has clicked off her clock. This is your clock, pretty normal." Hillary asked,
"Where's Bill's clock?" St. Peter replied, "Oh, it's in Jesus' office
upstairs. He is using it as a ceiling fan."
