Arthur Davidson, the inventor of the Harley Davidson
motorcycle, died and went to heaven. At the gates, St.
Peter told Arthur, "Since you've been such a good man
and your motorcycles have changed the world, your
reward is, you can hang out with anyone you want in
Arthur thought about it for a minute, then said, "I
want to hang out with God."
St. Peter took Arthur to the Throne Room and
introduced him to God. God recognized Arthur and
commented, "Okay, so you were the one who invented the
Harley Davidson motorcycle?"
Arthur said, "Yes, that's me."
God said, "Well, what's the big deal in inventing
something that's pretty unstable, makes noise and
pollution and can't run without a road?"
Arthur was apparently embarrassed, but finally he said,
"Excuse me, but aren't You the inventor of woman?"
God said, "Yes."
"Well," said Arthur, "professional to professional,
you have some major design flaws in your invention:
1. There's too much inconsistency in the front-end
2. It chatters constantly at high speeds...
3. Most of the rear ends are too soft and wobble too much.
4. The intake is placed way too close to the exhaust...
5. And the maintenance costs are enormous!"
"Hmmmmm, you have some good points there," replied God,
"hold on." God went to His Celestial super computer,
typed in a few words and waited for the results. The
computer printed out a slip of paper and God read it.
"Well, it may be true that my invention is flawed," God
said to Arthur, "but according to these numbers, more
men are riding my invention than yours."
