St Peter Asks a Teacher, a Garbage Collector, and a Lawyer One Question to Let Them Into Heaven

The rules for getting into Heaven are pretty simple. Top of the list is not committing murder and then not to lie, cheat, or steal, commit adultery or covet your neighbor's wife.

But sometimes the odds are just stacked against you from the very beginning, as was the case with the lawyer in the following story.

Recently a teacher, a garbage collector, and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates.

St. Peter informed them that in order to get into Heaven, they would each have to answer one question.

First, St. Peter addressed the teacher and asked, "What was the name of the ship that crashed into the iceberg? They made a movie about it."


The teacher answered quickly, "That would be the Titanic."

St. Peter let him through the gate.

St. Peter turned to the garbage man and, figuring Heaven didn't REALLY need all the odors that this guy would bring with him, decided to make the question a little harder. 

"How many people died on the ship?"

Fortunately for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered, "About 1,500."

"That's right! You may enter."

St. Peter then turned to the lawyer and said: 

"Name them."

Does St. Peter seem a little anti-lawyer to you? That poor guy doesn't stand a chance! Remember to share it with your friends if it made you laugh.
