A woman got to call the shots at the Pearly Gates.

It’s commonly said that while nobody wants to die, everyone wants to go to paradise. That’s probably true, too, as evidenced by the fact that jokes about dying and going to paradise tend to be the funniest.

In one way or another, a lot of them entail waiting at the pearly gates and extending an invitation to enter heaven. A good joke usually involves some sort of test, one that allows the person at the pearly gates to determine whether or not the joker is allowed in.
