    A lawyer died and arrived at the Pearly Gates.

    Saint Peter asked him, "What have you done to merit entrance into
    Heaven?"

    The lawyer thought a moment, then said, "A week ago, I gave a quarter
    to a homeless person on the street."

    Saint Peter asked Gabriel to check this out in the records, and after
    a moment Gabriel affirmed that it was true.

    Saint Peter said, "Well , that's fine, but it's not really quite
    enough to get you into Heaven."

    The Lawyer said, "Wait, wait! There's more! Three years ago, I also
    gave a homeless person a quarter."

    Saint Peter nodded to Gabriel, who, after a moment, nodded back to
    affirm that it was true.

    Saint Peter then whispered to Gabriel, "Well, what do you suggest we
    do with this fellow?"

    Gabriel gave the lawyer a sidelong glance, then said to Saint Peter,
    "Let's give him back his 50 cents and tell him to go to Hell."
