Three Italian nuns die and go to heaven, where they are met at
the Perly Gates by St. Peter. He says, "Ladies, you all led
such wonderful lives, that I'm granting you six months to go
back to Earth and be anyone you want."
The first nun says, "I want-a to be Sophia Loren" and *poof!*
The second says, "I want-a to be Madonna" and *poof!* she's
The third says, "I want-a to be Sara Pipalini."
St. Peter looks perplexed. "Who?" he says.
"Sara Pipalini" replies the nun.
St. Peter shakes his head and says "I'm sorry but that name
just doesn't ring a bell."
The nun then takes a newspaper out of her habit and hands it
to St. Peter. He reads the paper and starts laughing. He hands
it back to her and says "No Sister, this says 'Sahara Pipeline
laid by 500 men in 7 days'! "
