Little Lucy found her cat, Tiddles, lying on the ground with its eyes shut, and its legs stiff in the air. "Daddy! What's wrong with Tiddles?"
Daddy gently said, "I'm afraid Tiddles is dead, Lucy."
"But why are his legs sticking up in the air, Daddy?" asked Lucy, as she fought back the tears.
At a loss for something to say, he replied, "Well, ah, Tiddles' legs are pointing up because that makes it easier for Jesus to pick her up and take her back to heaven."
Little Lucy seemed to take her Tiddles' death pretty well. However, two days later when her father came home from work Lucy had tears in her eyes and said, "Daddy! Daddy! Mommy almost died this morning!"
"What? What happened, Lucy? Tell Daddy!"
"Well," mumbled Lucy, "this morning I found Mommy lying on the kitchen floor with her legs straight up in the air, shouting,'Oh, Jesus!!! I'm coming, I'm coming!!' It's a good thing the mailman was holding her down or she'd have gone to heaven!"
