Albert Einstein died and as luck would have it, he found that he would be given a chance of getting into heaven.
So he waited in line for a while at the Pearly Gates for someone to let him in and then finally Saint Peter turned up.
Saint Peter said to him, “You look like Albert Einstein, but you have no idea of the lengths that some people will go to, to try and sneak into heaven. Can you prove who you really are?”
Einstein pondered for a few seconds and asked Saint Peter, “Please could I have a blackboard and some chalk?”
Saint Peter snapped his fingers and a blackboard and chalk instantly appeared.
Einstein proceeded to describe with arcane mathematics and symbols his theory of relativity.
Saint Peter was suitably impressed. “You really are Albert Einstein! Welcome to Heaven!”
Well, a short time later, the next person to arrive at the Pearly Gates was Pablo Picasso.
Once again Saint Peter asked him for his credentials.
Picasso asked Saint Peter, “Do you mind if I use that blackboard and chalk?”
Saint Peter replied, “Go ahead”.
So Pablo Picasso erased Einstein’s equations and sketched a truly stunning mural with just a few strokes of chalk.
Saint Peter clapped his hands and said. “Surely you are the great artist you claim to be! Come on in!”
Then Saint Peter looked up and saw Donald Trump standing there with the familiar Trump grump on his face.
Saint Peter scratched his head and said, “Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso have both managed to prove their identity, enabling them to get into Heaven. How can you prove yours?”
Donald Trump looked bewildered and said, “Who are Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso?”
Saint Peter sighed, “Come on in, Donald”.
Yes I know, it’s a believable story. Well, that is up to the last bit, because there is no way Trump would get into Heaven. We won’t go into that here though as this is a joke not a discussion about ethics and human morals.
