Three couples are in line at the pearly gates. St. Peter says to the first couple, "Sorry, I can't let you in."

"Why not?" asked the husband.

"Because all the two of you ever cared about was drinking. "You were either stone drunk or hung over. "You didn't have a sober day in your marriage," said St. Peter.

"That's not true!" pleaded the couple.

"Really, now", said St. Peter. "What's your wife's name?"

"Sherry," said the man.

"See, you even married a woman named after a drink!" said St. Peter just as he released a trap door, sending them straight down to hell.

Then he a told the second couple they couldn't get into Heaven, either.

"Why not?" asked the second husband.

"Because all you ever cared about was making money, and you didn't care how you did it. You would cheat anybody, anytime to make your fortune", said St. Peter. "You even cheated your own brothers and sisters out of their inheritance!"

"That's not true!" pleaded the husband.

"Oh, really?" queried St. Peter "What's your wife's name?"

"Penny", said the husband.

"See?" said St. Peter "You even have wife named after money." At which point he released the trap door sending them down to hell.

The third husband, in dismay, said to his wife, "Gee whiz, Fanny, I don't think we stand a chance!"
