A zebra died and went to heaven.
At the pearly gates, he was met by St. Peter, who, on examining, the zebra's file said "You can certainly come in. In fact, you seem to have been such a good zebra that we can offer to solve one major problem for you. Do you have any problems?"
The zebra replied "I do have one problem. I would like to know whether I am white with black stripes, or black with white stripes."
St Peter said "That's a tough one. Yo will need to meet the boss to ask that one"
So an appointment was made, the zebra attended, and afterwards St. Peter asked, "What did he say"
The zebra responded "All he said was - you are what you are"
St. Peter says "That's OK then. That means you are white with black stripes."
The zebra said "How come?"
St. Peter said "If you had been black with white stripes, the boss would have said: 'You is what you is!'"
