Egged on your face, Rabbi. (Steven Abrams)

(Heard around Passover holidays...)

An orthodox Rabbi dies and goes to heaven.  As he's approaching the
gates, he hears a band of singing and dancing angels approach, and
begins to get excited.  The lead angel approaches the Rabbi and asks
if he would mind stepping aside for a moment.  Shocked, the Rabbi does

The angels march out of the gates and encircle a man who has also
approached the gates.  The man is an Egged bus driver [Egged,
pronounced like egg-head without the h, is the Israeli tour bus
company].  The joyous parade of angels carry the bus driver in ahead
of the Rabbi.

When the parade is gone, an angel returns to the Rabbi and says, "You
can come in now."  The angel begins to lead the Rabbi inside alone.

The Rabbi, somewhat confused, says, "I'm not one to make waves or
anything, but I need to know something.  I think I've been a good
Rabbi.  I've worked hard all my life.  Why is it that the Egged bus
driver gets led in by a band of angels ahead of me?"

The angel says, "Well, frankly, Rabbi, whenever you preached, people
slept.  But whenver he drove, people prayed."
