A man dies and finds himself standing third in line at the Pearly
Gates. The Angel explains that admission requirements are now
a bit more strict, as a few slum landlords and con artists have
managed to slip into Heaven without being detected.
He queries the first candidate: "What was your annual salary,
and what was your profession?
"I made $450,000 as an attorney," comes the reply.
"You may enter," says the Angel, "take elevator #2.".
Second candidate, same question.
"I made $95,000, I was a realtor." He is also permitted to
enter and was told to take elevator #4
Now it is the third man's turn.
"My annual income was $175."
"Cool!" replies the Angel, "take elevator #9. By the way,
what ezine did you publish?"
