One day, a teacher, a garbage collector and a lawyer wound up together at the Pearly Gates.  They were informed by St Peter that they would each have to answer a question in order to get into Heaven.

St Peter addressed the teacher and asked, “What was the name of the ship that crushed into an iceberg?  They just made a movie about it.”

The teacher answered quickly, “That would be Titanic.”

St Peter let him through the gate.  He, then, turned to the garbage man.  Having decided to make the question harder, “How many people died on the ship?”

Fortunately, for him, the trash man had just seen the movie and answered, “About 1,500.”

“That’s right!  You may enter.”

St Peter turned to the lawyer and said, “What were their names?”
