    Speaking of entering…A man died and approached the Pearly Gates. St. Peter told him heaven was getting crowded so he had to test people with the point system. If he got to 100 points he could enter. The man told Peter that he gave to the poor. Peter marked him down for 3 points. The man thought again, then said that he tithed. Peter added one point. The man, desperately searching his memory, finally said that he never cussed. Peter added 1/2 a point. By now the man got very frustrated and said that at this rate he could only get in by the grace of God. Peter replied, “Come on in!”

    The tomato family was on vacation. Baby Tomato was not keeping up with the rest of the family, dragging behind, as it were. Papa Tomato, to make his point of how important is was for the entire family to stay together, reached back toward Baby Tomato, slammed his hand down, & yelled, “Ketch-up!”

    The preacher was wired for sound with a lapel mic, and as he preached, he moved briskly about the platform, jerking the mic cord as he went. Then he moved to one side, getting wound up in the cord and nearly tripping before jerking it again.
    After several circles and jerks, a little girl in the third pew leaned toward her mother and whispered,”If he gets loose, will he hurt us?”
