An angel descends and tells them “Actually, there’s been a mistake. It wasn’t your time to die. We will let you come back to life, but you must promise to renounce your vices.”
To the Irishman, the angel said, “Your vice is drinking too much. You can come back to life as long as you stop drinking. We will tempt and test you to make sure you abstain.” He agrees.
To the Greek, the angel said, “You engage in perverted sexual practices. You can come back to life only if you remain celibate. We will test you to make sure you comply.” He agrees.
To the Jew, the angel said, “Your vice is greed. You can come back to life only if you reform your avaricious ways. But you will be tested.” He agrees.
As the three resurrected men are walking down the street, they pass a bar. The Irishman resists. They pass a second bar. He resists again. They pass a third bar, and the Irishman can’t resist any longer – he runs toward the bar and instantly disappears in a puff of smoke.
Frightened, the Greek and the Jew continue walking. The Jew spots a penny on the ground, and is able to resist picking it up. Then it turns into a quarter. Still he resists. Then it turns into a dollar. He wavers, but still resists.
It turns into a five. Nope.
It turns into a ten. Nope.
It turns into a $20 bill.
He bends over to pick it up, and both him and the Greek disappear.
