Engineering in Hell

An engineer died and reported to the Pearly Gates. An intern angel checked his dossier and grimly informed him, "Ah, you're an engineer. You're in the wrong place."

So, the engineer was cast down to the gates of Hell and was let in there. But pretty soon, the engineer became dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and began designing and building improvements.

Soon, the underworld had air conditioning, flush toilets, and escalators, and the engineer was becoming a pretty popular guy.

One day, God called down to Satan and asked, "So, how's it going down there?"

"Great!" Satan said. "We've got air conditioning, flush toilets and escalators! There's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next."

God's face clouded over and he exploded, "What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake. He should never have been sent down there. Send him up here."

"No way," said Satan. "I'm keeping him."

God fumed, "This is not the way things are supposed to work and you know it. Send him back up here, or I'll sue."

Satan laughed, "Yeah, right. And just where are YOU going to get a lawyer?"
