St. Peter is very busy in Heaven, so he leaves a sign by the
Pearly Gates: “For Service Ring Bell.” Away he goes; he
barely gets started when BING! the bell rings. He rushes
back to the gates, but no one’s there.
St. Peter goes back to work when suddenly BING! the bell
rings again. He rushes back to the gates, but no one’s
there. A little annoyed, St. Peter goes back to work.
Suddenly, BING! the bell rings again. St. Peter goes back;
again, no one’s there. “Okay, that’s it,” St. Peter says.
“I’m going to hide and watch to see what’s going on.” So St.
Peter hides, and a moment later, a little old man walks up
and rings the bell.
St. Peter jumps out and yells, “Aha! Are you the guy who
keeps ringing the bell?”
“Yes, that’s me,” the little old man says.
“Well, why do you keep ringing the bell and going away?” St.
“They keep resuscitating me,” he replies.
