If Only You Had Looked

Two men waiting at the Pearly Gates strike up a conversation.

"How'd you die?" the first man asks the second.

"I froze to death," says the second.

"That's awful," says the first man. "How does it feel to freeze to death?"

"It's very uncomfortable at first," says the second man. "You get the shakes, 
and you get pains in all your fingers and toes. But eventually, it's a very 
calm way to go. You get numb and you kind of drift off, as if you're sleeping.  
How about you, how did you die?"

"I had a heart attack," says the first man. "You see, I knew my wife was 
cheating on me, so one day I showed up at home unexpectedly. I ran up to the 
bedroom, and found her alone, knitting. I rushed down to the basement, but no 
one was hiding there. I ran up to the second floor, but found no one there either. 
I went as fast as I could to the attic, and just as I got there, I had a massive 
heart attack and died."

The second man shakes his head. "That's so ironic," he says.

"What do you mean?" asks the first man.

"If you had only stopped to look in the freezer, we'd both be still alive."
