A priest and a bus driver both died and went to Heaven at the same time. They get to the pearly gates where Pope St. Peter greets them. He motions to the priest, and they both hop in a jeep and go out the back door. There are about 50 acres of rolling hills with a little cottage on the knoll. St. Peter turns to the priest and says "This will be yours for eternity. A perfect little cottage, right next to lovely pond, a lush little garden, and a library full of books." The priest says, "Thank you so much. This I shall enjoy!" St. Peter drops off the priest, goes back to the pearly gates and motions to the bus driver. They hop in a stretch limo and go out the front door. There are about 500 acres of land, with mountains and lakes and rivers.

## Splash

A very wealthy man named Dick always had dinner parties to show off how wealthy he is. One night, the party shifted to the backyard, where Dick's pool was.

Dick announced to the everyone around, "I have a proposition for everyone. Whoever can swim across this pool filled with sharks, alligators, and snakes and makes it out alive, can have one of three things. You can have 1000 head of my cattle, 100 acres of my best oil fields, or my daughter's hand in marriage."

As soon as he said that, he heard a splash at the other end of the pool. A young man was swimming as fast and as furiously as he could.
