A man died and arrived at the pearly gates where St. Peter waited for him. St. Peter said, “Okay, you’re already cleared to go into heaven, you just have to pass one simple test.”
“Okay,” said the man.
“All you have to do is spell the word love”
“Oh, that’s easy. L-O-V-E, ” said the man.
St. Peter replied, “Okay well you’re good to get into heaven, but do you think you could do me a favor and cover my job for a bit while I run a few errands? All you’ll have to do is when someone comes ask them how to spell love.”
“Sure,” said the man.
St. Peter left to run his errands and sure enough someone arrived at the gates. It was the man’s wife. The man asked his wife what she was doing here and how she died.
“Well,” she said, “I was really depressed when you died and I just didn’t see any point in living without you, so I thought I’d kill myself and come spend all of eternity with you.”
“Sure, honey,” said the man, “all you have to do is pass one test.”
“Okay, what do I have to do?” said his wife.
“Just spell the word, ‘Chrysanthemum’.”
