A man appears before St. Peter. St. Peter says, "Before I can let you into Heaven, I have to know if you've done anything especially good."

"Well," says the guy, "once I was in a bar, and I noticed this big mean biker trying to force his attentions on a poor, frail woman. She was obviously terrified, and no one else in the bar was brave enough to help her. So I went over, tapped the biker on the back, and said, 'Look here, you big ugly cuss, let this woman alone, or I'll take you on single-handed.'"

Guy looks at his watch. "About three minutes ago."
