Man on his deathbed is talking with his wife. "Well, you can't take it with you, " says he. Wife says, "How do we know? Has anyone really ever tried?" So they agree that they will give it a shot. They hang his bag of gold in the corner of the room with the plan that as he goes past it he will grab it and take it along.
That night he dies and sure enough, it works. He shows up at the gates of heaven with his bag of gold. St. Peter greets him at the door to welcome him and asks, "Whatcha got in the bag?" Proudly the man opens the bag and reveals his accomplishment.
St. Peter asks, "Whatcha gonna do with asphalt?"
