Joke: cab driver

A preacher and taxi cab driver both die and arrive at the pearly gates. The taxi driver approaches Peter and is given a white silk robe and a golden walking stick before entering heaven. The preacher approaches Peter and is given a brown wool robe and a crooked, wooden stick before entering heaven.

The preacher cannot believe this and says. "Now wait a minute. I am a preacher; I have devoted my whole life to preaching the word of God. So I get a wool robe and this crooked, wooden walking stick and this man who is a taxi driver gets a silk robe and a golden walking stick. That can't be right!"

Peter looked at the preacher and explained, "Well you see," he said, "You were a preacher and while you were preaching people slept, but when people rode with this taxi driver - they prayed!"
