Fraser Coast Chronicle - - OPINION -

Two men wait­ing at the pearly gates of Heaven strike up a con­ver­sa­tion.

“How did you die?” the first man asks the sec­ond.

“I froze to death,” says the sec­ond. “That’s aw­ful, how does it feel to freeze to death?” asks the first.

“It’s very un­com­fort­able at first, you get the shakes, and you get pains in all your fin­gers and toes. But even­tu­ally, it’s a very calm way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off, as if you’re sleep­ing.”

“How did you die?” asks the sec­ond.

“I had a heart at­tack, you see, I knew my wife was cheat­ing on me, so one day I showed up at home un­ex­pect­edly.

I ran up to the bed­room, and found her alone, knit­ting. I ran down to the base­ment, bot no one was hid­ing there. I ran as fast as I could to the at­tic, and just as I got there, I had a mas­sive heart at­tack and died.”

“That’s so ironic. If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we’d both still be alive,” the sec­ond replies.
