    While walking down the street one day a U.S. politician is tragically stuck by a truck and is killed. His soul arrives in heaven and is met at the pearly gates by Saint Peter, "Welcome to heaven" says St. Peter "Before you get settled in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see any high officials around here, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you". "No problem just let me in"says the politician. "Well i'd like to but i have orders from higher up. What we'll do is have you spend one day in hell and one day in heaven, then you can choose where you want to spend eternity".
    "Really I've made up my mind, I want to be in heaven", says the politician. "I'm sorry but we have our rules" and with that, St. Peter escorts him tto the elevator, and he goes down , down, down to hell.
    The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a beautifully manicured golf course. In the distance is a clubhouse, and standing in front of it are all his friends and other politicians who had worked with him, and hundreds of stunningly beautiful women. Everyone is very happy and all are in evening dress. They all run to greet him, shake is hand, and reminisce about the good times they all had while getting rich at the expense of the people. They play a friendly round of golf, and then dine on lobster, caviar, and champagne.
    Also present is the devil, who relly is a very friendly guy who has a great time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it's time to go.
    Everyone gives him a hearty farewell and waves as the elevator rises.The elevator goes up, up, up and the door opens on heaven. where St. Peter is waiting for him."Now it's time to visit heaven". So 24 hours pass with the politician joining a group of contented souls moving from cloud to cloud,playing the harp and singing. They have a good time, and before he realizes it, the 24 hours have gone by and St.Peter returns.
    "Well then, you've spent a day in hell and a day in heaven. Now choose your eternity". The politician reflects for a minute, then he answers "Well i would never have said it before, i mean heaven is delightful, but i think i'd would be better off with my friends in hell"
    So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and down, down, down he goes to hell. Now the door opens and he's in the middle of an unbelievably hot barren wasteland covered in waste and garbage.He sees all his friends dressed in rags, on their knees picking up the waste and garbage and putting it into black bags as more waste and garbage falls from above.
    The devil walks up to him and puts his arm around his shoulder. "I don't understand", stammers the politician "Yesterday there was a beautiful golf course , and a clubhouse, and we all dined on lobster, caviar, and champagne, we all danced and had a great time. now there's just a barren wasteland full of waste and garbage, and my friends all look miserable. What happened?
    The devil looks at him and smiles," Yesterday we were campaigning, today you voted!"................ray:cool::cool::cool:

    Excellent one Ray, and so fitting!! Reminds me I once saw a quote of Frederich Nietche, the German philosopher, same guy who said "God is dead". Anyway the quote read: "In heaven, all the interesting people are missing"!!! Ha Ha.
