Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. St. Peter greets them, saying, "We only have one rule here in heaven - don't step on the ducks."
When they enter heaven, the women find that it is almost impossible not to step on a duck. They try their best to avoid them, but the first woman does accidentally step on one. St Peter duly appears with the ugliest man she ever saw. He chains them together and says, "Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man."
The following day, the second woman accidentally steps on a duck. St Peter appears with another extremely ugly man, and chains him to the woman, offering the same admonishment as for the first woman.
The third woman, not wanting to be chained for all eternity to an ugly man, is very, very careful where she steps. She manages to go months without stepping on any ducks. One day St Peter appears with the most handsome man she has ever laid eyes on. He is very tall, muscular and slim, with long eyelashes. St Peter chains the two of them together, without a word.
The woman says to the man, "I wonder what I did to deserve being chained to you for all eternity?" The man replies, "I don't know about you, but I stepped on a duck."
