A Wee Bit Of Humor

It is said that when an Irishman dies, before he goes to his final judgement, he is judged by St. Patrick.

So when Jimmy Doogan from Pittsburgh died, he was not surprised to find himself standing before the Apostle of Ireland himself.

St. Patrick asked, "Is there any good you did in your life? What way did you bring Christ to the world?"

Jimmy thought for a while and couldn't think of anything good he had done.

St. Patrick said to him, "Surely now, ya must have done some good in your lifetime!"

Jimmy thought a little more and then replied, "Well, I did give a dime to a bum once."

St. Patrick looked at Jimmy with shock and amazement. "Oh dear. I'm not sure what to say about that. Give me a second while I go and consult with St. Peter."

St. Patrick found St. Peter by the pearly gates and told him about the dime. St. Peter thought for a moment, reached into his pocket, pulled out a dime and gave it to St. Patrick saying, "Give him his dime back and tell him to go to Hell!"
