A woman died and went to heaven but when she arrived at the "Pearly Gates," she found Peter. "Before you can come in, you have to spell a word," he said.
"What word?" she asked.
"L-O-V-E. Love," she said.
"Come on in. But I was wondering if you'd do me a quick favor. Stand here for a few moments. I'll be right back. If anyone comes, just follow the same procedure."

"I just had a heart attack. Did I really make it?" he asked.
"Not yet. You have to spell a word," she said.
After a few moments she said, "Czechoslovakia."
