Knocking at Heaven's Gate.

Not much in the talking mood today, but I did happen to find a joke that you all might enjoy. I hope it brings a smile to your face.

A Preacher died and was waiting in line at the Pearly Gates. Ahead of him was a guy in blue jeans, a leather jacket and a tattoo on his arm. Saint Peter asked the fellow with the tattoo "Who are you, so I'll know whether to let you in the Kingdom of Heaven"?

The guy replies "I'm Tom and I drove a taxicab in New York City".

Saint Peter than looks at his list and says to Tom "Take this silk robe and gold staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven"! Dismissing Tom, the saint shouts "Next"!

The Preacher steps up and sticking out his chest, says "I'm the Reverend Jimmy Lee Tapscott, pastor of First-Baptist Church for forty-three years".

Saint Peter looks at his list and says to the Reverend "Take this flour sack robe and hickory stick and enter the Kingdom of Heaven".

Surprised, the Preacher shouts:
"Now wait a minute! That man was a taxicab driver and he gets a silk robe and a gold staff"?

Saint Peter looking solemnly at the Preacher replies "When you preached, people slept. When he drove, people prayed".
