Overheard At The Cemetery

These two boys filled up a bucket of nuts and sat down by the tree.  Out of sight, they started dividing up the nuts.  "One for you and one for me."  A couple of the nuts rolled towards the fence.

A third little boy was cycling down the road.  He heard voices and decided to investigate.  He heard the "One for you and one for me" comments.  He knew immediately what it was.  "Oh my!  Satan and St.  Peter are dividing souls at the cemetery!"

He cycled on down the road until he found an old man hobbling along with a cane.  He pleaded with the old man to come listen to the voices.  The old man shooed him away.  "Boy, can't you see I'm having trouble walking as it is now??"

But the boy wouldn't let up.  So the old man hobbled down to the fence and heard the "one for you and one for me."

"Oh my," said the old man, "It IS the Devil and St.  Peter divvying up those souls!" He turned to the boy.  "Let's see if we can see them!" They edged towards the fence, still unable to see anything, but heard finally, "and one for you and one for me.  Now, let's get those two nuts by the fence and we'll be done."

The old man beat the boy to town by fifteen minutes.
