The Engineer from Hell
« on: Wed 28 May 2008 03:39:40 »
An engineer dies and ends up at the Pearly Gates. Unfortunately his timing was off and St Peter was a bit distracted with other worldly matters and simply sent him of to the "other place" without a second thought. So the engineer ends up at hell where he is warmly welcomed.

Pretty soon, the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, they've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

Time passes, until one day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, "So, how's it going down there in hell?"

Satan replies, "Hey things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

God replies, "What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake -- he should never have gotten down there; send him up here."

Satan says, "No way. I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him."

God says, "Send him back up here or I'll sue."

Satan laughs uproariously and answers, "Yeah, right. And just where are you going to get a lawyer?"
