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 against this lawyer, but he'll someday come up against a lawyer of a different kind if Kim Kardashian gets her way.

"The Keeping Up With The Kardashians" sister plans on taking the bar exam in 2022 following in her father's footsteps. The late Kardashian patriarch became famous for representing O.J. Simpson in his infamous murder trial.

California is among four states that allow anyone to take the bar exam, whether they have attained an undergraduate degree or not.

The qualifying candidate needs to apprentice to a law firm or Judge before taking the bar, a study method called "reading the law."


Kardashian will be apprenticed to a San Francisco law firm with the intention of taking the bar exam in four years. She is also being mentored by Jessica Jackson and Erin Janey in prison reform and criminal justice.

Whatever the naysayers might believe, Robert Kardashian Sr. is no doubt looking down at his daughter with pride as she takes on the monumental task of studying at the age of thirty-eight.
