It’s free!”

asked timidly.

A guy just died and he’s at the pearly gates, waiting to be
admitted, while St. Peter is leafin’ through this Big Book to
see if the guy is worthy.

St. Peter goes through the Book several times, furrows his
brow and says to the guy, ‘You know, I can’t see that you
ever did anything really bad in
your life, but you never did anything really good either. If
you can point to even one REALLY GOOD DEED — you’re in.’

The guy thinks for a moment and says, ‘Yeah, there was this
one time when I was driving down the highway and saw a giant
group of thugs assaulting this poor girl. I slowed down my
car to see what was going on and sure enough,
there they were, about 50 of ’em harassing this terrified
young woman.

Infuriated, I got out of my car, grabbed a tire iron out of
my trunk, and walked up to the leader of the gang, a huge guy
with a studded leather jacket and a chain running from his
nose to his ear. As I walked up to the leader, the thugs
formed a circle around me. So, I ripped the leader’s chain
off his face and smashed him over the head with the tire
iron. Laid him out. Then I turned and yelled at the rest of
them, ‘Leave this poor innocent girl alone! You’re all a
bunch of sick, deranged animals! Go home before I teach you
all a lesson in pain!”

St. Peter, impressed, says, ‘Really? When did this happen?’

’Oh, about two minutes ago.’


This chain letter was started by a gentleman in the hopes of bringing
relief to other tired and discouraged men. Unlike most chain letters,
this one does not cost anything. Just send a copy of this letter to five of
your friends who are equally tired and discontented. Then bundle up your
wife or girlfriend and send her to the man whose name appears at the top
of the list, and add your name to the bottom of the list. When your turn
comes, you will receive 15,625 women.

One of them is bound to be better than the one you already have. At the
writing of this letter, a friend of mine had already received 184 women,
four of whom were worth keeping. REMEMBER–this chain brings luck. One
man’s pit bull died, and the next day he received a Sports Illustrated
swimsuit model. An unmarried Turkish man living with his widowed mother
was able to choose between a well-educated, sweet coed who could both
work and not be too tired for fun, and a very attractive and highly
successful plastic surgeon who just happened to be a nymphomaniac.

You can be lucky too, but DO NOT BREAK THE CHAIN! One man broke the
chain and got his wife back
