    The Priest and the Pilot

    A priest dies and is waiting in line at the Pearly Gates.




    Ahead of him is a guy who's dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket and jeans.


    Saint Peter addresses this cool guy, ' Who are you, so that I may know whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven? '

    The guy replies, 'I'm Jack, retired airline pilot from Houston.'

    Saint Peter consults his list. He smiles and says to the pilot,
    'Take this silken robe and golden staff and enter the Kingdom.'

    The pilot goes into Heaven with his robe and staff.

    Next, it's the priest's turn He stands erect and booms out,
    'I am Father Bob, pastor of Saint Mary's for the last 43 years.'

    Saint Peter consults his list. He says to the priest,
    'Take this cotton robe and wooden staff and enter the Kingdom.

    'Just a minute,' says the good father. 'That man was a pilot and he gets a silken robe and golden staff and I get only cotton and wood. How can this be?'

    'Up here - we go by results,' says Saint Peter.' When you preached - people slept.

    When he flew, people prayed.'

    Aaaaackkk...Yup. We just watched an episode of "Air Disasters" about a couple of pilots flying a Lear 45 and both of them lied about the fact that not only were they not certified to fly that aircraft, one of them didn't even finish slight school! Predictably, they crashed in downtown Mexico City on approach.

    The version I heard had the Pope second in line, and an airline pilot in front. The Pope asked St. Peter why the pilot got the higher class treatment. Said St. Peter, "Your Eminence, you must understand that we have fifty or sixty Popes up here already. The guy in front of you is the only airline pilot, so we thought he deserved something special".

    Here's another:

    Q: What is the difference between God and a pilot?

    A: God doesn't walk around acting like He's a pilot.

    Priest and a taxi driver. Saint Pete told the priest the taxi driver scared the hell out of more people than the priest talked into Heaven.

    Unfortunately there are many gun owners who will still shop at Wal Mart even though they know Wal Mart partnered with Everytown for Gun Safety just because it is convenient and they can save a few bucks.

    I had a friend who was an Army test pilot. He scared me on many occasions. We were flying in a helicopter one day when he announced we were going to auto-rotate and turned off the engine before I could ask what auto-rotate meant. I spent time with him in the observer seat in a Mohawk.
