In honouring the outstanding services rendered to their respective countries, God has decided to grant Mahathir, Queen Elizabeth, and Vladimir Putin a sneak preview of Heaven via concious dream. One night, they, all together in one dream, find themselves travelling to Heaven's Gate. On their way, they come across an enormous rusty gate and their attention are drawn to a red, distinctively looking telephone at the gate's front . They stop and ask what the phone is for. The gate's keeper, the devil, tells them it is for calling back to Earth.
Putin asks to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is one million dollar, so Putin writes him a check.
Next Queen Elizabeth calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she is finished the devil informs her that the cost is 6 million dollars, so she writes him a check.
Finally Mahathir gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is $5.00.
When Putin hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why Mahathir got to call Malaysia so cheaply.
The devil smiles and replies: "Since Najib took over, the country has gone to hell. This gate is the main entrance to hell, so it's a local call."
