Going to Heaven
A priest walked into a pub, indignant to find so many of his parishioners there. He rounded them up and shepherded them into the church.
The he solemnly said, “All those who want to go to heaven, step over here to the left.” Everyone stepped over except one man, who stubbornly stood his ground.
The priest looked at him firecely and said, “Don’t you want to go to heaven?”
“No,” said the man.
“Do you mean to stand there and tell me you don’t want to go to heaven when you die?”
“Of course I want to go to heaven when I die. I thought you were going now!”
