St Peter was manning the pearly gates when 40 New Yorkers showed up Never having seen anyone from the Big Apple at heavens door before St Peter thought he had better consult God So he left the group at the gates and went off to find God
Ive got 42 people from New York said St Peter Is it safe to let them in?
New York huh? mused God We certainly dont want heaven overrun with New Yorkers Why dont you just admit the ten most virtuous?
St Peter went back to relay the news but a few minutes later returned to God in a state of anxiety
Whats happened? asked God
Theyve gone gasped St Peter
What all of the New Yorkers?
No the pearly gates..
