9. Shoeless Fisherman

Old Zeke arrived at the Pearly Gates with his fishing pole, worn-out clothes, and bare feet.  Saint Peter welcomed him with a smile, and Zeke just waved offhandedly and shuffled silently by with a toothless grin.  As he did, Saint Peter told him, “You will find a nice brook about half a mile up.”

Reverend Noteworthy said to Saint Peter, “That man was a loafer who never did a lick of work in his life.”

“He was a fisherman,” said Saint Peter.  “Fishing counts as work.”

Reverend Noteworthy was smart enough to drop the subject.
