    A minister dies and, resplendent in his clerical collar and
    colorful robes, waits in line at the Pearly Gates. Just ahead of
    him is a guy dressed in sunglasses, a loud shirt, leather jacket,
    and jeans.

    Saint Peter addresses this guy, "Who are you, so that I may know
    whether or not to admit you to the Kingdom of Heaven?"

    The guy replies, "I'm Joe Green, taxi driver, of Noo Yawk City."

    Saint Peter consults his list, smiles and says to the taxi driver,
    "Take this silken robe and golden staff, and enter into the
    Kingdom." So the cab driver enters Heaven with his robe and staff,
    and the minister is next in line. He stands erect. Without being
    asked, he proclaims, "I am Joseph Snow, head pastor of Saint
    Mary's for the last forty-three years."

    Saint Peter consults his list and says, "Take this cotton robe and
    wooden staff and enter the Kingdom of Heaven."

    The minister says, "Just a minute. That man was a taxi-driver, and
    you issued him a silken robe and golden staff. But I get wood and
    cotton. How can this be?"

    Saint Peter says, "Up here, we go by results. While you preached,
    people slept; while he drove, people prayed."

    Sure enough. I've never slept in a taxi.
