Fwd: Humour-Engineer vs Lawyer

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Found on the net:

An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates.  St. Peter checks his
dossier and says, "Ah, you're an engineer -- you're in the wrong
So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.  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, 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, 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?"

I would prefer being popular while still on earth
