With Easter just around the corner, I guess I'll test those waters a little ahead of the pack.
It will be the only time this will ever happen. If you were in bed - see what you missed!
Now off to the Easter Parade:
....Three Rednecks had just died, and arrived at the Pearly Gates of Heaven on Easter Sunday. St. Peter greeted them and told them that they can enter the gates only if they could answer one simple question.
St. Peter asked the first Redneck, "WHAT IS EASTER?"
"WRONG," replied St. Peter. He then proceeded to ask the second Redneck the same question, "WHAT IS EASTER?
The second Redneck replied, "No, Easter is the holiday in December when we put up a nice tree, exchange presents,and celebrate the birth of Jesus."
The third Redneck smiled and looked St. Peter square in the eye. "I know what Easter is. Easter is the Christian holiday that coincides with the Jewish celebration of Passover. Jesus and his disciples were eating at the last supper and Jesus was later deceived and turned over to the Romans by one of his disciples. The Romans took him to be crucified and he was stabbed in the side, made to wear a crown of thorns, and was hung on a cross with nails through his hands. He was buried in a nearby cave which was sealed off by a large boulder."
St. Peter smiled broadly with delight. At least one of these yokels was getting in.
The third Redneck continued, "Every year the boulder is moved aside so that Jesus can come out... and, if he sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter."
