Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:

Bob and Bill were lifelong friends and baseball fans. One day they learned that Bill was terminally ill with only two weeks to live.

Bob pleaded, “Bill, promise me that after you have passed on, you’ll come back and tell me if there is baseball in heaven.”

Bill replied, “Lord willing, I will.”

Bill passed away, and time passed. One night, Bob was awakened by a blinding light in his room.

Bob asked, “Bill, is that you?”

“Yes, it’s me,” Bill replied.

Bob asked, “Well, is there baseball in heaven?”

Bill replied, “Well… I’ve got some good news and some bad news, Bob.”

Bob couldn’t contain himself. “Give the good news first!”

“Yes, there is baseball in heaven,” Bill stated.

Bob sighed, “With news like that, how bad could the bad news be?”

Bill replied, “You’re pitching on Saturday.”
