The Top 16 Things You Don't Want
to Hear at the Pearly Gates
- "You stuck a knife in the toaster? Boy you *are* a doofus."
- "Before we go on, you might want to change into something a little less flammable."
- "Bet you're regretting all those Falwell jokes now, aren't you, Mr. White?"
- "Hey, Saint Augustine! Saint Ignatius! Look! It's Gary, the kid who peed all over himself during the 1982 Kennedy Elementary School Christmas pageant!"
- "Hey, aren't you the guy who wrote that 'Who Let the Dogs Out' thing? God's been waiting for *you*."
- "I can't let you in because God doesn't believe you exist."
- "Price check! Carnal knowledge of a trained seal."
- "Take a seat. It'll be a few minutes -- God's helping a high school football team in Texas."
- "Just because Moses didn't write down 'Thou shalt honor Pauly Shore' doesn't make it God's fault."
- "Oh, I wouldn't worry about the heat -- the fall will probably kill you."
- "Okay, so you're a nice guy. Now watch as I flip to the page containing the number of people executed while you were Governor of Texas."
- "TopFive? Oh, yeah... the Boss has been keeping a close eye on you folks."
- "You donated your organs? Sorry, you're going to need those! Wait in the foyer until ALL your parts are here."
- "Jeez, this can't be right... *how* many times did you masturbate?!"
- "Boy, Aquinas is gonna be tweaked at this one. He had $50 bucks riding on your humanist-based moral code doing you in, when all along it was incident with the goat and the tequila."
