Pearly Gates

A woman died and found herself standing outside the Pearly Gates, being greeted by St. Peter. She asked him, Oh, is this place what I think it is? Its so beautiful! Did I make it into heaven?

St. Peter replied, Yes, my dear, these are the Gates to Heaven. But you must do one more thing before you may enter.

The woman was very excited, of course, and she asked St. Peter what she must do to pass through the gates. Spell a word, St. Peter replied.

What word? she asked.

Any word, St. Peter answered. Its your choice.

The woman promptly replied, Then the word I will spell is love. L, O, V, E, love.

St. Peter congratulated her on making it into Heaven and asked her if she would mind taking his place at the gates for a few minutes while he ran a quick errand. Id be honored, she said, but what should I do if someone comes while youre gone?

St. Peter reassured her and instructed the woman, Just have any newcomers to the Pearly Gates spell a word as you did.

So the woman is left sitting in St. Peters chair and watching the beautiful angels soaring around her when lo and behold, a man approaches the gates. Shes shocked to realize its her husband.

What happened? she cried. Why are you here?

Her husband stared at her for a moment, then said, I was so upset when I left your funeral, I was in an accident. And now Im here? Did I make it into Heaven with you?

Not yet, the woman replied, First you have to spell a word correctly.

Which word? he asked.

The woman replied, Czechoslovakia.
