If you thought the SATs were bad, wait until you get to "almost heaven" where the recently deceased must pass a final exam in order to gain admission to proverbial paradise. Former fig-leaf wearer Adam is no stranger to this unearthly waiting room. In fact, it's his seven-hundredth visit and this time he's truly being tested by Greg, an inquisitive podiatrist, and the wisecracking St. Peter. Will Adam finally be granted access through the pearly white gates or is he doomed to roam the earth with yet another new identity?
