That reminds me of another HMO joke:
Three doctors die and go to heaven...St. Peter walks up to the first and says "what did you do for humankind during your life?"
The doctor says "I was an obstetrician and I brought hundreds of babies into the world". St. Peter says "good, welcome to heaven."
St. Peter repeats the question to the second, who replies "I was a surgeon, and I performed operations that saved lives and let people live longer with their loved ones." St. Peter says "that was a worthy thing, welcome to heaven".
St. Peter looks at the third and says "what did you do to help humankind during your life?" He says "I worked for an HMO, and provided many people with low-cost health care!"
St. Peter said "welcome to heaven...you can stay for two weeks and then you can go to hell".
OMG I love that Pagan! I read it to my daughter and she went off to bed laughing.
How true, you either rise and stand or leave your buttprints in the sand.
Reading this it occurred to me that often it has been mentioned here on these boards that God is a father and we are children. But as parents we do not carry our children forever. Our goal is to make them self-sufficient and to teach them to stand on their own two feet. If you let your children lean on you their whole lives they end up weak and never learn independence.
Anyways, I 'm keeping this puppy. Thanks babe :)
