Two men waiting at the Pearly Gates strike up a conversation. ‘How'd you die?’
the first man asks the second.
‘I froze to death,’ says the second.
‘That's awful,’ says the first man. ‘How does it feel to freeze to death?’
‘It's very uncomfortable at first’, says the second man. ‘You get the shakes,
and you get pains in all your fingers and toes. But eventually, it's a very calm
way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off, as if you're sleeping. How
about you, how did you die?’
‘I had a heart attack,’ says the first man. ‘You
see, I knew my wife was cheating on me, so one day I showed up at home
unexpectedly. I ran up to the bedroom, and found her alone, knitting. I ran down
to the basement, but no one was hiding there, either. I ran up to the second
floor, but no one was hiding there either. I ran as fast as I could to the
attic, and just as I got there, I had a massive heart attack and died.’
second man shakes his head. ‘That's so ironic,’ he says.
‘What do you mean?’
asks the first man.
‘If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we'd both
still be alive.’
You couldn't buy me with a million babe
