Politicians
« on: January 29, 2008, 05:31:32 PM »

While walking down the street one day a US senator is tragically hit by a truck and dies.

His soul arrives in heaven and is met by St. Peter at the entrance.

"Welcome to heaven," says St. Peter. "Before you settle in, it seems there is a problem. We seldom see a high official around these parts, you see, so we're not sure what to do with you."

"No  problem, just let me in," says the man.

"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 in heaven. Then you can choose where to spend eternity."

"Really, I've made up my mind. I want to be in heaven,"  says the senator.

"I'm sorry, but we have our rules."

And with th at, St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down  to hell. The doors open and he finds himself in the middle of a green 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. Everyone is very happy and in evening dress. They run to greet him, shake his hand, and reminisce about the good times they had  while getting rich at the expense of the people.

They play a  friendly game of golf and then dine on lobster, caviar and  champagne.

Also present is the devil, who really is a very friendly guy who has a good time dancing and telling jokes. They are having such a good time that before he realizes it, it is time to go.

Everyone  gives him a hearty farewell and waves while the   elevator rises...

The elevator goes up, up, up and the door reopens on heaven where St. Peter is waiting for him.

"Now it's time  to visit heaven."

So, 24 hours pass with the senator 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 another in heaven. Now choose your eternity."

The senator reflects for a minute, then he answers: "Well, I would never have said it before, I mean heaven has been delightful, but I think I would be better off in hell."

So St. Peter escorts him to the elevator and he goes down, down, down to hell.

Now the doors of the elevator open and he's in the middle of a barren land covered with waste and garbage. He sees all his friends, dressed in rags, picking up the trash and putting it in black bags as more trash falls from above.

The devil comes over to him and puts his arm around his  shoulder. "I don't understand," stammers the senator. "Yesterday I was  here and there was a golf course and clubhouse, and we ate lobster and caviar, drank champagne, and danced and had a great time. Now there's just a wasteland full of garbage and my friends look miserable. 
What happened?"

The devil looks at him, smiles and says,

        "Yesterday we were campaigning......

                    ................Today you voted."

Hello Craig,

                Now that was priceless, in as much as this is a joke and great humor, the irony of it is that a lesson is expressed to me, in that the politicians lie and mislead people as to what they promise prior to their inauguration and now they get a taste of their own medicine. Fortunately for them and others, it isn't going to end up that way for them( Eternally Speaking ). My Dad sends me this type of joke, all the time. This was pretty good, my wife also enjoyed it.  Now are you ready for this one, I've never voted in my entire life, only just registered two years ago, I don't really know what I'll be doing when this coming election arrives.                           
                                                  Your Brother, Samson

LOL  :D

The best humor has that ring of truth and irony to it.

Thanks for the laugh Craig,
