Stop me if you’ve heard this one.
A Muslim dies and finds himself in front of St Peter at the gates of heaven.
“Hey, what’s going on here? Where am I?” he asks St Peter.
“Welcome to the afterlife,” St Peter replies.
“No, no this isn’t right. I want to speak to the prophet Mohammed, right away.”
“Your shoes look a little dirty. Would you like them shined?” asks St Peter.
“No! I want to speak to the prophet Mohammed,” replies the Muslim.
“Well, you can talk to Jesus if you want,” says St Peter, and goes off to find him.
“Jesus, I don’t understand what’s going on here,” the Muslim says. “I want to speak to the prophet Mohammed.”
“You shoes look a little dirty, would you like them shined?”
“No, I want to speak to the prophet! Now!”
“Well, you can talk to God if you like,” says Jesus.
This appears acceptable to the Muslim and off they go. Jesus lets the Muslim into a big room and leaves him. After a few moments there is a puff of smoke and God appears.
“Yes, what seems to be the problem here?” booms God.
The Muslim is very worked up by now. “Look, I don’t get what’s happened here, I want to talk to the prophet Mohammed!”
“You shoes are dirty, would you like them shined?”
“Okay, okay,” says the Muslim, “I’ll have my damn shoes shined – now will someone please let me speak to the prophet Mohammed?!”
Then God said “You heard him! Mohammed, come out here and shine this man’s shoes!”
