Heavenly estate

The Pope and a lawyer find themselves together before the Pearly Gates.

After a small quantum of time which was spent discussing their respective professions, ol St. Peter shows up to usher them to their new Heavenly station.

After passing out wings, harps, halos and such, St. Pete decides to show them to their new lodgings.

Only a brief flight from the welcome, Pete brings them down on the front lawn (cloud-encrusted, natch) of a huge palatial estate with all sorts of lavish trappings.

This, Pete announces, is where the lawyer will be spending eternity, (at least until the end of time..)

Hot Dang, the Pope says to His-self, If hes getting a place like this, I can hardly wait to see my digs!.

They take flight once again, and as Pete leads on, the landscape below begins to appear more and more mundane until they finally land on a street lined with Brownstone houses.

Pete indicates the third walkup on the left as the Popes new domicile and turns to leave, wishing the pontiff his best.

The Pope, in a mild state of astonishment, cries out Hey Pete! Whats the deal here? You put that lawyer-feller in a beautiful estate home and I, spiritual leader of terra-firma, end up with this dive?

Pete looks at the pontiff amusedly and replys: Look here old fellow, this street is practically encrusted with spiritual leaders from many times and religions. Were putting you here with them so you guys can get your dogma together. That other guy gets an estate, because hes the first (non-)damned lawyer to make it up here!!
