A joke with any other name could be just as funny

Pedro was driving down the street in a sweat because he had an important meeting and couldn't find a parking place. Looking up toward heaven, he said "Lord, take pity on me. If you find me a parking place I will go to Mass every Sunday for the rest of my life and give up tequila."

Miraculously, a parking place appeared. Pedro looked up again and said "Never mind. I found one."

There was no intention involved by the use of the name Pedro or his preference for tequila and Catholicism. The joke could apply to Baptist Bubba and beer or James, the Presbyterian Deacon, and his preference for young blondes and Scotch on the rocks.

Comments would joke work with an atheist in the starring role?

An atheist finally got to meet God face to face to ask a serious question. "Is it true that with you a million years is like a second?" Yes, God replied. "And so a million dollars would be like a penny to you, right?" Right, God said. "Then, could I have a penny?" asked the atheist. And God countered: In a second.
