You knew that was coming, didn't you?

Saturday, August 18, 2012

A famous lawyer, who had been a public defender for years, dies. He finds himself standing at the back of an enormous queue outside the gates of Heaven. The queue before him is enormous. The number of people who die in a single day appalls him. He can barely see St Peter sitting up on a podium outside the gates with a large book. Every now and then St Peter glances down the queue to see how he is going. Suddenly he catches the eye of the lawyer. He looks very surprised. He jumps down from the podium and comes running along the line until slightly out of breath he arrives beside the lawyer. He embraces him. He pulls him out of the queue and motions for him to come to the front of the queue. Another person questions what is happening and another angel speaks to the person. Word is passed along the queue and the lawyer is surprised, as people start nodding and clapping. He becomes embarrassed by all the attention and asks St Peter why he is getting the special attention.

St Peter stops suddenly and looks concerned.

"You are a lawyer aren't you?'

"Yes" the lawyer replies. "Does this happen to all lawyers in heaven?"

"Oh, no, "Said St Peter. "It's just you are the first one to ever get here."

When my daughter was little, she could present such a 'logical' argument that we used to say she'd become a lawyer and the only way she'd be able to save the family honour, would be to work for Amnesty International. Turns out she's more a scientist and will be off to Uni in the Autumn to study Biology.
