FROM: Canadian, eh – Canada Day 2003;

AKA: Canadian, eh; God’s Country Only in Canada, you say; Proud Canadians; Ten Cents;

An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the world. For his first chapter he decided to write about American churches. So, he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando, thinking that he would work his way across the country from South to North.On his first day, he was taking photographs inside a church when he noticed golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read “$10,000 per call.” The American, being intrigued, asked a priest strolling by what the telephone was used for.

The priest replied that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000 one could talk to God.

The American thanked the priest and went along his way.

Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the same golden telephone with the same sign under it. Wondering if this was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando, and he asked a nearby nun what its purpose was.She told him that it was a direct line to Heaven and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.

“O. K., thank you,” said the American. He then travelled to Indianapolis, WashingtonDC, Philadelphia, Boston, New York and Montpelier. In every church, he saw the same golden telephone with the same ‘$10,000 per call’ sign under it.

The American, upon leaving Vermont, saw a sign for Canada and decided to see if Canadians had the same phone.He drove for a while and finally arrived in North Bay, and sure enough, there again in the first church he entered was the same golden telephone – only this time the sign under it read, “10 cents per call.”

The American was surprised that and he asked the priest about the sign. “Father, I’ve travelled all over the United States and I’ve seen this same golden telephone in many churches. I’m told that it is a direct line to Heaven, but in every state the price was $10,000 per call. Why is it so cheap here?”

The priest smiled and answered, “You’re in Canada now, son; it’s a local call.”
