Three nuns die and go to heaven.

They are greeted by St Peter, who informs them that everyone entering heaven must pass an intelligence test, but since they were nuns and had devoted their lives to Jesus, the questions would be really easy.

St Peter turned to the first nun and said, “Name three of Jesus’ disciples.”

“Oh that’s easy,” the first nun replied, “Matthew, John, and James.”

The bells rang and the lights flashed and the pearly gates opened and the first nun entered.

St Peter turned to the second nun and asked, “Who was Moses?”

The nun confidently replies, “Moses led the Israelites out of Egypt into the promised land.”

The bells rang and the lights flashed and the pearly gates opened a second time and the second nun entered.

Finally, St Peter addresses the third nun. “What was the first thing Eve said when she saw Adam?”

The third nun paused for a moment and muttered, “Gosh, that’s a hard one.”

And the bells rang and the lights flashed and the pearly gates opened.
