Margaret Thatcher dies and strolls up the pearly staircase to the pearly gates,

where she is confronted by St. Peter, brandishing a clipboard. "Name," says St.


"Margaret Thatcher," she replies.

St. Peter checks through all the lists on his clipboard but cannot find the name

of the former British leader. "I am sorry," he says, "you cannot come in. Your

place is downstairs, in Hell. Mrs. Thatcher turns and walks down the stairs.

A short time later the phone rings. St. Peter answers, and a voice says, "Hello

Peter, it is the Devil speaking. You will have to take that bloody woman after

all - she is only been here for ten minutes and she has closed half the furnaces

to reduce capacity."

A comedic biggie, (no pun intended) Jonathan Winters is, gone.


Jonathan Winters, who was known for his improv work that inspired many a contemporary stand-up comic including Robin Williams, Jim Carrey and others, has died. He was 87.


Longtime family friend Joe Petro III says Winters died Thursday evening at his Montecito, Calif., home of natural causes, reports AP.
