|A man passed away and went to Heaven. When he arrived at the Pearly Gates, St. Peter said, "Come on in. I`ll show you around. You`ll like it here."|
While walking through the gates, the man noticed clocks everywhere. There were grandfather clocks, wall clocks, watches, and clocks in every corner. It appeared that Heaven was nothing more than a giant clock warehouse.
The man questioned St. Peter, "What`s the deal? Why are all these clocks here in Heaven?"
"The clocks keep track of things on earth. There is one clock for each person. Every time that person on earth tells a lie, his clock moves ahead one minute." St. Peter continued, "For instance, this clock is for Sam, the used car salesman. Sam sells a lot of used cars, so the minute hand on his clock moves all day long."
The man and St. Peter continued walking. Soon, they came to a clock with cobwebs on the minute hand. "Whose clock is that?" asked the man.
"That clock belongs to the Widow Mary. She is one of the finest, God-fearing, people on earth. I`ll bet her clock hasn`t moved in a year or two."
When the tour was finished, the man said, "You know, I ve seen everyone`s clock but President Clinton`s. Where`s his clock?"
Saint Peter smiled and replied, "Look overhead. We use his clock for a ceiling fan."
