The Last Laugh

Settembre 2008
Heaven and Hell

di Mark Worden

File audio:

Speaker: Chuck Rolando (Standard American accent):

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates of heaven. St. Peter checks his dossier and says: “Ah, you’re an engineer; you’re in the wrong place.”
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in. Pretty soon the engineer becomes 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.
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 out loud and answers: “Yeah, right! And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?”
