Now we know where they go on Thursday...

A Heaven joke, gacked from fearciuil

A teacher dies and arrives at the Pearly Gates. St. Peter welcomes her and offers to show her around, an offer she enthusiastically accepts. So they begin the tour.

After a time, they come to a Victorian mansion.

“This is nice,” the teacher says. “Is this where I’m going to live?”

“No,” St. Peter responds, “this is where the doctors live.”

And so, they continue on. A time later, they come upon a modern, California-style mansion.

“This is nice,” the teacher says. “Is this where I’m going to live?”

“No,” St. Peter responds, “this is where the lawyers live.”

And so they continue on, through a beautiful wood full of beautiful wildflowers. Finally, they come to a quaint cottage with a thatched roof.

“Oh, this is nice!” the teacher says. “Is this where I’m going to live?”

“Yes,” St. Peter responds. “This is where the teachers live.”

And so they go inside, and the teacher begins to look around. She quickly notices that the cottage is very quiet.

“Where is everybody?” she asks. “Surely I’m not the only teacher to make it to Heaven!”

St. Peter replies, “No, we have lots of teachers. It’s just that today, they’re all in Hell at an inservice.”

I am so going to pass that on tomorrow!

Oh, and Spokane teachers are spared from inservices this semester: they've all been turned into school days to make up for the snowstorm.

It's a teacher thing. I don't understand.

Passed that one on to My Wife, who teaches music at a middle school.

Or might. Of 30 teachers on site, 13 got pinkslipped, and 3 principals got told to be ready to take a classroom come fall.

Let's hope those pink slips flutter far from your wife's classroom!

On that note:

Did you know that heaven and hell are actually right next to each other? They are separated by a big chain-link fence. Well, one day hell was having a big party and it got a little out of hand. God heard the ruckus and arrived to find his fence completely smashed by the wild partiers. He called the devil over and said "Look, Satan , you have to rebuild this fence." Satan agreed. The next day God noticed that the devil had completely rebuilt the fence...but it was 2 feet further into heaven than before.

"Satan!" cried God. "You have to take that fence down and put it back where it belongs!"

"Yeah? What if I don't?" replied the devil.

"I'll sue you if I have to," answered God.

"Right," laughed Satan. "Where are you going to find a lawyer?"

I've heard a variant of that joke. The exact offense differed greatly, but the punchline could apply to many scenarios.
