They all arrive at the Pearly Gates and Saint Peter says “Let me ask you a question before admitting you to heaven.”
To the first he says “My son, while on Earth did you lead a good life?”
“Oh yes, ” says the first man,” I had thirty years of marriage to a wonderful woman and I was honest in business”
“I see here in the book you’re telling the truth”, says Saint Peter, “here are your keys to a brand new Mercedes to drive in Heaven”.
To the second he says “My son, while on Earth did you lead a good life?”
He answers “Saint Peter I was married for several years and then cheated on my wife but we reconciled.”
“I see here in the book you’re telling the truth”, says Saint Peter,” here are your keys to a used Ford Taurus to drive in heaven. “
The third man steps up and says,” Saint Peter, lemme save us both a lot of trouble. I screwed everything in a skirt and never passed up a shot at dirty money”
“Well”, says Saint Peter, “the book says you’re telling the truth, awful though it is. Here is a moped to ride in heaven”
Several days later the third man pulls up to a red light only to see the first man slumped over the wheel of his Mercedes, crying.
“What could possibly be so bad? “, he asks.”You had a wonderful life, a great marriage and now you’re driving a Mercedes in Heaven!”
The first man sobs out “I just saw my wife on a skateboard!”
