An elderly Punjabi admitted to the intensive care department of a hospital
requested that he take lessons in French. The doctor was puzzled and asked him
"Well, French is the language of heaven," he sighed. "I want
to be able to communicate with everyone in heaven if I die."
"But how are you so sure that you will end up in heaven? You might go to
hell. What good will French do you then?" asked the doctor.
"That will no problem. I am fluent in Punjabi."
