good news bad news
Carl and Abe are two old baseball fanatics. They agree that whoever dies first will try to come back and tell the other one if there’s baseball in heaven.
One evening Abe passes away in his sleep. A few nights later Carl hears what sounds like Abe’s voice.
“Abe, is that you?” he asks.
“Of course it’s me,” Abe replies.
“I can’t believe it,” Carl whispers. “So tell me, is there baseball in heaven?”
“Well, I have good news and bad news,” Abe says. “The good news is, yes, there is baseball in heaven. The bad news is you’re pitching tomorrow night.”
