- The Pope died and like all good Christians he went to Heaven and
knocked on the pearly gates. Peter opened up and asked who was calling.
"I'm the Pope," said the Pope.
Peter picked up the phone and rang Jesus. "There's someone here who
says he's the Pope, do you know him?"
"No, never heard of him. Send him to hell," says Jesus.
"That's not right," protests the Pope. "I demand you ring God
So Peter rang God and said: "We've got someone who says he's the Pope.
Do you know him?"
God answered, "No. Never heard of him. Send him to hell."
"Then I demand you ring the Holy Spirit," said the Pope.
Peter rang and said: "I have someone here claiming to be the Pope. Do
you know him?"
"Yes," said the Holy Spirit. "He's the one who told everyone
I got Maria pregnant. Send him to hell."
- A farmer named Clancey lived alone in the Irish countryside except
for a pet dog he cherished. The dog grew old and died. Clancey went to the
parish priest, saying, "Father, the dog is dead. Could you
possibly be saying a mass for the poor creature?"
Father Mike told the farmer, "No, we can't have services for an
animal in the church; however, there's a new denomination down the road
apiece...not sure of their beliefs...but maybe they'll do something for the

- There were two ministers who met each Sunday morning riding to their
particular church. They both enjoyed riding the bikes and talking. Then one
Sunday one of the ministers was walking. "My what happened to
"Can you believe that someone in my congregation stole it?"
"NO!," then an idea struck him, " You
want to know how to get your bike back?"
"Next Sunday give a fire and brimstone sermon on the Ten
Commandments and when you get to the part about Thout shall not steal, just
look out into the congregation and see who looks guilty."
Well the next Sunday the minister comes riding up on his bike.
"Hey I see my suggestion worked."
"Well sort of, I was going along real good on the Ten
Commandments and when I got to the part about Adultery I remembered where I
left the bike."
- A down-and-out, who has nevertheless lived a good, righteous life,
dies and turns up at the golden gates. St Peter says: "OK, you
can come in, but you'll have to use the tradesmen's entrance round the back."
He duly goes round the back and manages to find his way into heaven through
this scruffy little back door.
Well, he is there rejoicing with the angels, when suddenly there is a
fanfare of trumpets and the sound of majestic music. With great pomp and
ceremony the golden gates are flung wide, and amid a triumphal procession in
walks a Bishop, arm-in-arm with St. Peter himself. Heaven goes wild with
cheering and general celebration.
The tramp turns to the angel next to him and says "I don't get
it, do you still have class distinctions up here, somehow I thought we'd all
be treated equally "
"Oh no", says the Angel, "you don't
understand. We just had to celebrate. You see, we get a lot of people like
you up here, but he's the first Bishop who's ever made it."
