Pearly Gates Jokes:
The Senator and St
Peter: While walking down the street one day a corrupt Senator was hit by a bus and died. His soul
arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.
"Welcome to heaven," says St.. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems
there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts,
you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."
"No problem, just let me in," says the Senator.
"Well, I'd like to, but I have orders from the higher ups. What we'll do
is have you spend one day in hell and one in heaven. Then you can
choose where to spend eternity."
"Really?, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven," says the
"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."
And with that, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down,
down, down to hell.
The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green golf
In the distance is a clubhouse and standing in front of it are all his
friends and other politicians who had worked with him.
Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him,
shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had while
getting rich at the expense of the people.
They played a friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and
the finest champagne.
Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who is
having a good time dancing and telling jokes.
They are all having such a good time that before the Senator realizes
it, it is time to go.
Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the elevator rises.The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens in heaven where St.
Peter is waiting for him, "Now it's time to visit heaven...”;
So, 24 hours passed with the Senator joining a group of contented souls
moving from cloud to cloud, playing the harp and singing. They have a
good time and, before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St.
"Well, then, you've spent a day in hell and another in heaven. Now
choose your eternity."
The Senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never
have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I
would be better off in hell."
So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to
Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren
land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in
rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash
falls to the ground.
The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his shoulders.
"I don't understand," stammers the Senator. "Yesterday I was here and
there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar,
drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a
wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. What happened?"
The devil smiles at him and says, "Yesterday we were campaigning.
Today, you voted.."
Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth at the Pearly Gates
Dolly Parton and Queen Elizabeth die on the same day and they
both go before an Angel to find out if they'll be admitted to
Heaven. Unfortunately, there's only one space left that day, so
the angel must decide which of them gets in. The Angel asks
Dolly if there's some particular reason why she
should get into Heaven.
Dolly takes off her top and says, 'Look at these, they're the
most perfect breasts God ever created, and I'm sure the angels
will be pleased to see them every day, for eternity.'
The Angel thanks Dolly, and asks Her Majesty the same question..
The Queen takes a bottle of Perrier out of her purse, shakes it
up, and gargles. Then, she spits into a toilet and pulls the
lever. The angel chuckles and says, 'Okay, Your Majesty, you may
Dolly is outraged and asks, 'What was that all about? I show
you two of God's own perfect creations and you turn me down. She
spits into a commode and gets in! Would you explain that to me?'
'Sorry, Dolly,' says the angel, 'but, even in Heaven, a royal
flush beats a pair - no matter how big they are.'
Christmas at the Pearly Gates
Three men died on Christmas Eve and were
met by Saint Peter at the pearly gates.
'In honor of this holy season' Saint Peter said, 'you must each
possess something that symbolizes Christmas to get into heaven.'
The first man fumbled through his pockets and pulled out a
lighter. He flicked it on. 'It represents a candle', he said.
'You may pass through the pearly gates,' Saint Peter said.
The second man reached into his pocket and pulled out a set of
keys. He shook them and said, 'They're bells.'
Saint Peter said, 'You may pass through the pearly gates'.
The third man started searching desperately through his pockets
and finally pulled out a pair of women's panties. St. Peter
looked at the man with a raised eyebrow and asked, 'And just
what do those symbolize?'
The man replied, 'These are Carols.'
One day a guy dies and finds himself
in hell. As he is wallowing in despair, he has his first meeting with

a drinking man?"
Guy: "Sure, I love to drink."
Satan: "Well, you're gonna love Mondays then. On Mondays, that's all we
do is drink. Whiskey, tequila, Guinness, wine coolers, Tab, and Fresca.
We drink 'til we throw up, and then we drink some more! And you don't
have to worry about getting a hangover, because you're dead anyway."
Guy: "Gee that sounds great!"
Satan: "You a smoker?"
Guy: "You better believe it"
Satan: "All right! You're gonna love Tuesdays We get the finest cigars
from all over the world, and smoke our lungs out. ;If you get cancer -
no biggie, you're already dead, remember?"
Guy: "Wow...that's awesome!"
Satan: "I bet you like to gamble."
Guy: "Why, yes, as a matter of fact I do."
Satan: "Good, 'cause Wednesdays you can gamble all you want. Craps,
blackjack, roulette, poker, slots, whatever. If you go bankrupt, it
doesn't matter, you're dead anyhow."
Satan: "What about drugs?"
Guy: "Are you kidding? Love drugs! You don't mean...?"
Satan: "That's right! Thursday is drug day. Help yourself to a great big
bowl of crack or smack. Smoke a doobie the size of a submarine. You can
do all the drugs you want. You're dead so who cares."
Guy: "Wow! I never realized Hell was such a cool place!"
Satan: "You gay?"
Satan: "Oooo, Fridays are gonna be tough..."
Marriage in Heaven
On their way to get married, a young Catholic couple was involved in a
fatal car accident. The couple found themselves sitting outside the Pearly
Gates waiting for St. Peter to process them into Heaven.
While waiting they began to wonder: Could they possibly get married in
When St. Peter arrived they asked him if they could get married in heaven.
St. Peter said, "I don't know. This is the first time anyone has asked.
Let me go find out," and he left.
The couple sat and waited for an answer... for a couple of months. While
they waited, they discussed the pros and cons. If they were allowed to get
married in Heaven, should they get married, what with the eternal aspect
of it all? "What if it doesn't work? Are we stuck in Heaven together
Another month passed. St. Peter finally returned, looking somewhat
bedraggled. "Yes," he informed the couple, "You can get married in
"Great!" said the couple. "But we were just
wondering; what if things don't work out? Could we also
get a divorce in Heaven?"
St. Peter, red-faced with anger, slammed his clipboard on the ground.
"What's wrong?" asked the frightened couple.
"OH, COME ON!!!" St. Peter shouted. "It took me 3 months to find a priest
up here! Do you have ANY idea how long it'll take to find a lawyer???"
Two ladies at St. Peters’ Gate
1st woman : Hi! My name is Wanda.
2nd woman : Hi! I'm Kelly. How'd you die?
1st woman : I Froze to Death.
2nd woman : How Horrible!
1st woman: It wasn't so bad. After I quit shaking from the cold, I
began to get warm & sleepy, and finally died a peaceful death.
What about you?
2nd woman : I died of a massive heart attack. I suspected that my
husband was cheating, so I came home early to catch him in the act.
But instead, I found him all by himself in the den watching TV.
1st woman: So, what happened?
2nd woman: I was so sure there was another woman there somewhere
that I started running all over the house looking. I ran up into the
attic and searched, and down into the basement. Then I went through
every closet and checked under all the beds. I kept this up until I
had looked everywhere, and finally I became so exhausted that I just
keeled over with a heart attack and died.
1st woman: Too bad you didn't look in the freezer---we'd both still
A man arrives at the Pearly Gates, waiting to be admitted. St. Peter is
reading through the Big Book to see if the fellow's name is written in
it. After several minutes, St. Peter closes the book, furrows his brow,
and says, "I'm sorry, I don't see your name written in the
"How current is your copy?" he asks.
"I get a download every ten minutes," St.
Peter replies, "why do you ask?"
"I'm embarrassed to admit it, but I was always
the stubborn type. It was not until my death was imminent that I cried
out to God, so my name probably hasn't arrived to your copy yet."
"I'm glad to hear that," St. Peter says,
"but while we're waiting for the update to come through, can tell
me about a really good deed that you did in your life?"
The guys thinks for a moment and says, "Hmm,
well there was this one time when I was driving down a road and I saw a
big gang harassing this poor girl. I slowed down, and sure enough, there
they were, about 20 of 'em torturing this poor woman. Infuriated, I got
out my car, grabbed a tire iron out of my trunk, and walked up to the
leader of the gang. He was a huge guy -- 6-foot-6, 280 pounds, with a
studded leather jacket and a chain running from his nose to his ears. As
I walked up to the leader, they formed a circle around me and told me to
get lost or I'd be next.
"So I ripped the leader's chain out of his
face and smashed him over the head with the tire iron. Then I turned
around and yelled to the rest of them, "Leave this poor innocent
girl alone! You're all a bunch of SICK, deranged animals! Go home before
I really teach you a lesson in PAIN!"
St. Peter, duly impressed, says "Wow! When did
"Oh, about 8 minutes ago."
A woman arrived at the Gates of Heaven. While she was waiting
for Saint Peter to greet her, she peeked through the Gates. She saw a
beautiful banquet table. Sitting all around were her parents and all the
other people she had loved and who had died before her. They saw her and
began calling greetings to her.
- How are you! We've been waiting for you! Good to see you."
Saint Peter came by, the woman said to him "This is such a wonderful
place! How do I get in?"

Heaven. About a year later, Saint Peter came to the woman and asked her to
watch the Gates of Heaven for him that day. While the woman was guarding
the Gates of Heaven, her husband arrived.

I've been doing pretty well since you died," her husband told her.
"I married the beautiful young nurse who took care of you while you
were ill. And then I won the lottery. I sold the little house you and I
lived in and bought a big mansion. And my wife and I traveled all around
the world. We were on vacation and I went water skiing today. I fell and
hit my head, and here I am. How do I get in?"

Sister Margaret had been a model nun all her life, but then she was called to her reward. As she approached the Pearly Gates, Saint Peter said, "Hold on, Sister Margaret...not so fast!"
"But I have been good all my life and dedicated to the work of the Lord. From the time I was taken in as an infant by the sisters at the convent to my dying breath... I have lived for this moment!" Sister Margaret exclaimed in disbelief.
"That is just the problem...you never learned right from wrong and to get into heaven, you must know the difference between right and wrong," replied St. Peter.
"Well, what can I do? I will do anything to get into heaven!" Sister Margaret pleaded.
"I am going to have to send you back down to Earth. When you get there, I want you to smoke a cigarette and call me when you are finished...we will discuss your situation then," ordered St. Peter.
Sister Margaret returned to Earth, smoked a Camel, and then called St. Peter coughing and hacking. "Saint Peter" she gasped, "I can hardly breathe, my mouth tastes terrible, my breath stinks, I feel dizzy, and I think I am going to throw up!"
"Good!" replied the old saint, "Now you are finally getting a feel for right and wrong. Now go out tonight and drink some hard liquor and call me immediately."
Sister Margaret phoned St. Peter shortly after taking several belts of Jack Daniels. "Saint Peter...I feel woozy... that vile liquid burned my throat and
nauseate me...it is all I can do to keep it down."
"Good ... good! Now you are starting to see the difference between right and wrong" said St. Peter with delight. "Tomorrow I want you to seek out a man and know him in the Biblical sense
and then call me."
A week later, Sister Margaret called St. Peter and left a message: "Hello, Pete ... it's Peggy. I'm gonna be a while!"
A cat died and went to Heaven. God met her at the gates and said,
"You have been a good cat all these years. Anything you want is
yours for the asking."
The cat thought for a minute and then said, "All my life I lived on
a farm and slept on hard wooden floors. I would like a real fluffy
pillow to sleep on."
God said, "Say no more." Instantly the cat had a huge fluffy
A few days later, six mice were killed in an accident and they all went
to Heaven together. God met the mice at the gates with the same offer
that He made to the cat.
The mice said, "Well, we have had to run all of our lives: from
cats, dogs and even people with brooms! If we could just have some
little roller skates, we would not have to run again."
God answered, "It is done." All the mice had beautiful little
About a week later, God decided to check on the cat. He found her sound
asleep on her fluffy pillow. God gently awakened the cat and asked,
"Is everything okay? How have you been doing? Are you happy?"
The cat replied, "Oh, it is WONDERFUL. I have never been so happy
in my life. The pillow is so fluffy, and those little Meals on Wheels
you have been sending over are delicious!"
A man was in front of me coming out of church one
Christmas day and the preacher was standing at the door as he always is
to shake hands. He grabbed my friend by the hand and pulled him aside
and said: “You need to join the Army of the Lord!”
The man replied, “I’m already in the Army of
the Lord, Pastor.”
The Pastor questioned, “How com I don’t see you
except at Christmas and Easter?”
He whispered back, “I’m in the secret

Spielberg was discussing his new project - an action docudrama
about famous composers starring top movie stars. Sylvester Stallone,
Steven Segall, Bruce Willis, and Arnold Schwarzenegger were all
present. Spielberg strongly desired the box office 'oomph' of these
superstars, so he was prepared to allow them to select whatever
composers they wished to portray, as long as they were famous.
"Well," started Stallone, "I've always admired Mozart. I would love to
"Chopin has always been my favorite, and my image would improve if
people saw me playing the piano," replied Willis. "I'll play him."
"I've always been partial to Strauss and his waltzes," said Segall.
"I'd like to play him."
Spielberg was very pleased with these choices. "Sounds splendid."
Then, turning to Schwarzenegger, he asked, "Who do you want to be,
Arnold in a slow deliberate voice replied, "I'll be Bach."
There are many stories related to the sinking of the "Titanic".
Some have just come to light due to the success of the recent movie.
For example, most people don't know that back in 1912, Hellman's
mayonnaise was manufactured in England. The "Titanic" was carrying
12,000 jars of the condiment scheduled for delivery in Vera Cruz,
Mexico, which was to be the next port of call for the great ship after
New York City. The Mexican people were eagerly awaiting delivery and
were disconsolate at the loss. So much so that they declared a
national day of mourning which they still observe today. It is known,
of course, as: Sinko de Mayo.
Dear Tide: I am writing to say what an excellent
product you have! I've used it all through my married life. My Mom
always told me it was the best. Now that I am in my fifties, I find it's
even better! In fact, about a month ago, I spilled some red wine on
my new white blouse. My inconsiderate and uncaring husband started to
berate me about how clumsy I was, and generally started becoming a pain in
the neck. One thing led to another and somehow I ended up with a lot of
his blood on my white blouse. I tried to get the stain out using a bargain
detergent, but it just wouldn't come out. After a quick trip to the
supermarket, I purchased a bottle of liquid Tide with bleach alternative,
and to my surprise and satisfaction, all of the stains came out! In
fact, the stains came out so well the detectives who came by yesterday
told me that the DNA tests on my blouse were negative and then my attorney
called and said that I would no longer be considered a suspect in the
disappearance of my husband. What a relief! Going through menopause is bad
enough without being a murder suspect! I thank you, once again, for having
such a great product. Well, gotta' go. I have to write a letter to
the Hefty bag people.

The Chief nodded in agreement.
The official continued, "considering all these events, in your
opinion, where did the white man go wrong?"
The Chief stared at the government officials for over a minute and then
calmly replied: "When white man found the land, Indians were
running it. No taxes, No debt, Plenty buffalo, Plenty beaver, Women did
all the work, Medicine man free, Indian man spent all day hunting and
fishing, All night ! having sex. “Then the chief leaned back and
smiled: "Only white man dumb enough to think he could improve
system like that."

Some odd things about England...

1. In Shakespeare's time, mattresses were secured on
bed frames by ropes. When you pulled on the ropes the mattress
tightened, making the bed firmer to sleep on. Hence the phrase
"goodnight, sleep tight".
2. In English pubs, ale is ordered by pints and quarts. So in
old England, when customers got unruly, the bartender would yell
at them mind their own pints and quarts and settle down. It's
where we get the phrase "mind your P's and Q's"
3. Many years ago in England, pub frequenters had a whistle
baked into the rim or handle of their ceramic cups. When they
needed a refill, they used the whistle to get some service. "Wet
your whistle" is the phrase inspired by this practice.
4. In ancient England a person could not have sex unless you had
consent of the King (unless you were in the Royal Family). When
anyone wanted to have a baby, they got consent of the King, the
King gave them a placard that they hung on their door while they
were having sex. The placard had F.*.*.*. (Fornication Under
Consent of the King) on it. Now you know where that came from.

If any of you
are collecting the new quarters, you may have to wait awhile for the Wisconsin
ones. The United States Treasury has announced they are recalling the new
Wisconsin quarters. "We are recalling all of the new Wisconsin
quarters that were recently issued," Treasury Undersecretary Russell
Shackelford said in a press conference Monday.
"This comes in the wake of numerous reports to this agency that the
quarters will not work in parking meters, toll booths, vending machines,
pay phones, or other coin- operated devices."
"We believe the problem lies in a design flaw," said Skackelford.
The winning design for the Wisconsin quarter was submitted by Wisconsin
University student William Doutrieux.
"Apparently, the duct tape holding the two dimes and nickel together
keeps jamming the coin-operated devices."

Another Canada Joke
A man in a Florida
supermarket tries to buy half a head of lettuce. The young produce
assistant tells him that they only sell whole heads.
The man persists and asks to see the manager. "Ok, I'll go ask my
manager." Says the boy.
Walking into the back room, he locates the manager and says, "Some
idiot wants to buy half a head of lettuce." As he finishes his
sentence, he turns around to find the man standing right behind him,
so he adds, "and this gentleman has kindly offered to buy the other
half." The manager approves the deal and the man goes on his way.
Later that afternoon the manager says to the boy, "I was quite
impressed with the way you got yourself out of that earlier
situation; we like employees who can think on their feet. So, son,
where are you from?"
"Canada, sir," the boy replies.
"Well, why did you leave Canada ?" the manager asks.
The boy says, "Sir, there's nothing but loose women and hockey
players in Canada."
"Really?" says the manager. "My wife is from Canada."
“Oh, what team does
she play for?”
