Health Food and Heaven
An 85 year old couple, having been married almost 60 years,
died in a car crash. They had been in good health the last
ten years, mainly due to her interest in "health food."
When they reached the pearly gates, St. Peter took them to
their mansion which was decked out with a beautiful kitchen,
and master bath suite, complete with a Jacuzzi.
As they "Ooed and Aahed" the old man asked Peter how much
all this was going to cost.
"It's free," Peter replied, "this is Heaven."
Next they went out back to survey the championship golf
course on the back side of the house. They would have
golfing privileges everyday and each week the course
changed to a new one representing the great golf courses
The old man asked "what are the green fees?"
Peter's reply, "This is heaven, you play for free."
Next they went to the club house and saw the very lavish
buffet lunch with all the cuisine's of the world laid out.
"How much to eat?" asked the old man.
"Don't you understand yet? This is heaven, it is FREE!"
Peter replied with some exasperation.
"Well, where are the low fat and low cholesterol tables?"
the old man asked timidly.
Peter said, "That's the best part... you can eat as
much as you like of whatever you like and you never get
fat and you never get sick. This is heaven!"
With that the old man went into a fit of anger, throwing
down his hat and stomping on it, and shrieking wildly.
Peter and his wife both tried to calm him down, asking
him what was wrong. The old man looked at his wife and
said, "This is all your fault. If it weren't for your
health food, I could have been here ten years ago!"
