Stockbroker moving on to his heavenly reward
A stockbroker moving on to his heavenly reward, was met by St. Peter with some bad news.
“You’re qualified for residence,” St. Peter said, “but as you can see, the compound for stock brokers is packed. There’s no way to squeeze you in.”
After thinking for a moment, the stockbroker asked if he might say just four words to the present occupants. That seemed harmless to St. Peter, so the stockbroker cupped his hands and yelled, “Hell’s Profits 55% up.”
Immediately the gate to the compound opened and all the stock brokers marched out to head for the nether regions.
Impressed, St. Peter invited the stockbroker to move in and make himself comfortable. But the stockbroker paused, then said:
“On second thought, I think I’ll go along with the rest of the boys. There might be some truth to that rumor after all.”
