An American decided to write a book about famous churches around the=20
world. For his first chapter he decided to write about American=20
churches, so he bought a plane ticket and took a trip to Orlando,=20
thinking that he would work his way across the country from South to =
On his first day he was inside a church, taking photographs, when he=20
noticed a golden telephone mounted on the wall with a sign that read=20
"$10,000 per call". The American, being intrigued, asked a priest who=20
was strolling by what the telephone was used for. The priest replied=20
that it was a direct line to heaven and that for $10,000 you could talk=20
to God. The American thanked the priest and went along his way.=20
Next stop was in Atlanta. There, at a very large cathedral, he saw the=20
same golden telephone with the same sign under it. He wondered if this=20
was the same kind of telephone he saw in Orlando and he asked a nearby=20
nun what its purpose was. She told him that it was a direct line to =
and that for $10,000 he could talk to God.=20
"O.K., thank you," said the American.=20
He then traveled to Indianapolis, Washington DC ,Philadelphia, New York=20
and Montpelier. In every church he saw the same phone and the same=20
"$10,000 per call" sign under it. The American, upon realizing how close =
he was to Canada, decided to find out if Canadians had the same phone.=20
He crossed the border and came Smiths Falls church and again, there was=20
the same golden telephone, but this time the sign under it read "10 =
cents per call."=20
The American was surprised so he asked the priest about the sign. =
traveled all over the United States and I've seen this same golden=20
telephone in many churches. I'm told that it is a direct line to Heaven, =
every state the price was $10,000 per call.=20
Why is it so cheap here?=20
The priest smiled and answered, "You're in Canada now son,=20
it's a local call".=20
"Ils sont fous ces quebecois"
"They are insane these quebekers"
