Saint Peter is checking ID’s at the Pearly Gates, and first comes a Texan. “Tell me, what have you done in life?” says St.
The Texan says, “Well, I struck oil, so I became rich, but I didn’t sit on my laurels–I divided all my money among my entire family in my will, so our descendants are all set for about three generations.”
St. Peter says, “That’s quite something. Come on in. Next!”
The second guy in line has been listening, so he says,
“I struck it big in the stock market, but I didn’t selfishly just provide for
my own like that Texan guy.
I donated five million to Save the Children.”
“Wonderful!” says Saint Peter. “Come in. Who’s next?”
The third guy has been listening, and says timidly with a downcast look,
“Well, I only made five thousand dollars in my entire lifetime.”
“Heavens!” says St. Peter. “What instrument did you play?”
A guy walks into the doctor’s office and says, “Doc, I haven’t had a bowel movement in a week!” The doctor gives him a prescription for a mild laxative and tells him, “If it doesn’t work, let me know.”
A week later the guy is back: “Doc, still no movement!”
The doctor says, “Hmm, guess you need something stronger,” and prescribes a powerful laxative.
Still another week later the poor guy is back: “Doc, STILL nothing!”
The doctor, worried, says, “We’d better get some more information about you to try to figure out what’s going on. What do you do for a living?”
“I’m a musician.”
The doctor looks up and says,
“Well, that’s it! Here’s $10.00. Go get something to eat!”
Two women are walking in the woods when they hear a tiny voice calling them. They look down and see a frog – talking to them!
“Hey chicks, help me! I’m a jazz musician who’s been turned into a frog by an evil witch! If you kiss me, I’ll return to my former self.”
One of the women picks up the frog and places him in her coat pocket. The other asks why she didn’t kiss him.
“Are you kidding? He’s worth a LOT more as a talking frog than as a jazz musician!”
