Be Careful What You Wish For

Two priests recently passed away and were on their way to heaven. When they got to the Pearly Gates, St. Peter said, "I'm sorry but our computer is down and you can't come in for a week. So I am going to give you both one "free" week back on earth to do anything you want to do and nothing will be held against you."

"You mean we can do what ever we want, and still get into heaven?"

"Yes," said St.Peter.

"Okay," said the first priest, "I want to soar over the mountains like an eagle."

"That's easy enough," said St. Peter. "Off you go!"

The second priest asked, "Are you sure that whatever I do will not hinder my chances of getting into heaven?"

"That's right," said St. Peter. "Okay," said the second priest, "I want to go back as a stud."

"A stud?" asked St. Peter.

"Yes," said the second priest.

"Okay, I'll see you in a week."

Finally, the week ended and the computer was repaired. God asked to St. Peter, "Did you get the two priests back so they can join us here?"

"Well," said St. Peter, "I got the first priest back; he was soaring over the Rocky Mountains like an eagle. I'm having a bit of a problem locating the second priest; he's somewhere in North Dakota on a snow tire."
