They are waiting at the gate when St. Peter arrives and greets them, “Welcome to Heaven, ladies.
There is only one rule here in Heaven and it is don’t step on the ducks.”
The women each look at each other confusingly.
St. Peter opens the gate and sure enough there are thousands of tiny ducks covering the ground.
The first woman goes in and lasts a week and steps on a duck.
St. Peter appears out of nowhere with the ugliest man she has ever seen and handcuffs them together.
He says, “This is your consequence for stepping on a duck.
You must be stuck with this man for all eternity,” and disappears.
The second woman goes for a month and finally steps on a duck.
The same thing happens again.
St. Peter arrives with the ugliest man she has ever seen, handcuffs them together, explains what has happened and leaves.
The third woman goes on for years and years, but never steps on a duck.
Suddenly, St. Peter pops up out of nowhere with the most gorgeus man she has ever seen.
He handcuffs them together, and without saying a word, leaves.
The woman looks up at the man, bats her eyelashes and says, “Gee, I wonder what I did to deserve you.”
He slowly looks down at her and says, “I don’t know what you did, but I stepped on a duck.”
