Three Italian nuns died and went to heaven.
Sure enough, St. Peter was there to greet them at the Pearly Gates.
He said to the Italian nuns, “Sisters, you all led such exemplary lives down on Earth, that the Lord is granting you six months to go back to Earth and be anyone you wish to be”.
The Italian nuns were both surprised and delighted at this and all three of them thought for a while who they wanted to be for the next six months when they returned to Earth.
The first Italian nun said, “I would like to go back to Earth and spend six months as Sophia Loren. She was not only a wonderful person, she was beautiful as well”.
The next thing you know, “poof” and she was gone.
The second Italian nun said, “I would like to go back to Earth and spend six months as Madonna. She has the beauty that I do not and I have to admit to secretly liking her songs”.
Well, the next thing you know, “poof” and just like the first nun, she was gone too.
The third Italian nun said to St. Peter, “I would like to go back to Earth and spend six months as Sara Pipalini”.
St. Peter looked perplexed. “Who?” he asked the nun.
“Sara Pipalini” the nun replied.
St. Peter shook his head and said, “I’m sorry sister, but that name just doesn’t ring a bell”.
The nun then surprised St. Peter by taking a newspaper out of her habit and she handed it to him.
St. Peter read the newspaper and started laughing.
He handed it back to the nun and said, “No sister, the paper says it was the ‘Sahara Pipeline’ that was laid by 1,400 men in 6 months”.
Now, if you are laughing at this, you know you are going straight to hell right!
