The Longest Lived Man

A lawyer died and was met with a warm congratulatory reception in heaven. St. Peter came forward and presented him with an impressive plaque for being “The Longest Lived Man” in the history of the world.

Confused, the lawyer remarked, “What are you talking about? I was only 65!”

There was a quiet murmur as St. Peter dashed over to refer to the heavenly book. A moment later St. Peter approached the man as the crowd of well wishers dispersed.

With an apologetic tone St. Peter explained, “It was an honest mistake. You see, we added up the billable hours that you charged your clients.”
