A pastor always used the phrase, “It might be worse,” when some calamity would come his way. One day a friend said to him, “I’ve something to tell you, and you won’t be able to use your favorite phrase. I dreamt last night that I died and went to hell.”  “It might be worse,” said the preacher.   The friend came unglued: “man alive, how could it be worse?”  to which the pastor replied: “it might be true.  “http://javacasa.com/humor/pearlygate.htm

Two priests died at the same time and met Saint Peter at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter said, “I’d like to get you guys in now, but our computer’s down. You’ll have to go back to Earth for about a week, but you can’t go back as humans. What’ll it be?” The first priest says, “I’ve always wanted to be an eagle, soaring above the Rocky mountains.” “So be it,” says St. Peter, and off flies the first priest. The second priest mulls this over for a moment and asks, “Will any of this week ‘count’, St. Peter?” “No, I told you the computer’s down. There’s no way we can keep track of what you’re doing. The week’s a freebie.” “In that case,” says the second priest, “I’ve always wanted to be a stud.””So be it,” says St. Peter, and the second priest disappears. A week goes by, the computer is fixed, and the Lord tells St. Peter to recall the two priests. “Will you have any trouble locating them?” He asks. “The first one should be easy,” says St. Peter. “He’s somewhere over the Rockies, flying with the eagles. But the second one could prove to be more difficult.” “Why?” asketh the Lord. St. Peter answered, “He’s on a snow tire, somewhere in North Dakota.””http://javacasa.com/humor/pearlygate.htm
