The corridors of Heaven

A man died and went to Heaven. When he arrived, St Peter met him at the pearly gates and offered to show him round.

They walked down a long central corridor, which had a number of corridors leading off it. As they walked, St Peter pointed to left and right, saying, "The Buddhists are down there. That's the Muslims. The Hindus are on the left here. The Ba'hai are down to the right, and the Sikhs are next to them..."

Eventually, they turned down a long corridor, which had doors on each side. "This is the Christian wing," St Peter explained. He pointed to the doors as they went past, saying, "Here are the Methodists. In this room are the Baptists. The Presbyterians are on the right here..."

Then St Peter suddenly stopped, bent down to take his shoes off and whispered, "Now, we must go very quietly past this next door."

They both tiptoed past the door in their stockinged feet.

When they got to the other side, the man asked, "What was that all about, then?"

St Peter explained, "Oh, that was the room where the Catholics are. They think they're the only ones up here."
