My favorite joke

Below is my favorite joke since I was a little kid. I would like to dedicate this post to my dad, who is the best joke teller I know, and who was the person to introduce me to this joke at the tender age of 8. Seriously, do you know those people who always deliver stories/jokes perfectly? Yeah. That's my dad. I think he was a comedian in another life.

It got crowded in heaven, so, for one day it was decided only to accept people who had really had a bad day on the day they died. St. Peter was standing at the pearly gates and said to the first man, "Tell me about the day you died."

The man said, "Oh, it was awful. I was sure my wife was having an affair, so I came home early to catch her with him. I searched all over the apartment but couldn't find him anywhere. So I went out onto the balcony, we live on the 25th floor, and I found this man hanging over the edge by his fingertips. I went inside, got a hammer, and started hitting his hands. He fell, but landed in some bushes. So, I got the refrigerator and pushed it over the balcony and it crushed him. The strain of the act gave me a heart attack, and I died."

St. Peter couldn't deny that this was a pretty bad day, and since it was a crime of passion, he let the man in.

He then asked the next man in line about the day he died. "Well, sir, it was awful," said the second man. "I was doing aerobics on the balcony of my 26th floor apartment when I twisted my ankle and slipped over the edge. I managed to grab the balcony of the apartment below, but some maniac came out and started pounding on my fingers with a hammer. I fell, but luckily I landed in some bushes. But, then the guy dropped a refrigerator on me! And that's how I died"

St. Peter chuckled, let him into heaven and decided he could really start to enjoy this job.

"Tell me about the day you died?", he said to the third man in line.

"OK, picture this, I'm naked, hiding inside a refrigerator ..."

Happy Monday, y'all.

I can totally picture your dad telling that joke... in fact, I wouldn't be surprised if he told it to me at some point in the past. Hahaha.

Oh, and don't worry about asking your sis. I was just curious. Thanks though!

Two hunters are out in the woods when one of them collapses. He doesn't seem to be breathing and his eyes are glazed. The other
guy takes out his phone and calls the emergency services.

He gasps: "My friend is dead! What can I do?" The operator says: "Calm down, I can help.
First, let's make sure he's dead." There is a silence, then a gunshot is heard. Back on the phone, the guy says: "OK, now what?"

That's funny, but it may be funnier that your dad told it to you when you were 8. Eh, dads can get away with crap like that, I know I'm planning to.
