What happened to Bernanke's "quantitative easing?"

Ben Bernanke dies and goes to heaven. As he stands in front of the Pearly Gates, he sees a huge wall of clocks behind Saint Peter. He asks, "What are all those clocks?" Saint Peter answers, "Those are Lie-Clocks. Everyone on Earth has a Lie-Clock. Every time you lie, the hands on your clock will move. "Oh," says Ben, "whose clock is that?" "Well,” Saint Peter says, “that's Mother Teresa's. The hands have never moved indicating that she never told a lie."

Ben then points at another clock and asks, "Whose clock is that?" Saint Peter answers, "That's Abraham Lincoln's clock. The hands have only moved twice telling us that Abe only told 2 lies in his entire life."

Ben looks inquisitively at Saint Peter and asks, "Where's my clock?" Saint Peter replies, "Oh, your clock is in Jesus' office. He uses it as a ceiling fan."

Well, maybe we'll find out Wednesday....

Actually, the very first line of the joke was funny enough. Ben Bernanke goes to heaven? LMAO
