Got the following joke by email today. Could not resist posting it.
Bill Gates after Death
Well, Bill," said God, "I'm really confused on this one. I'm
not sure whether to send you to Heaven or Hell! After all, you
helped society enormously by putting a computer in almost
every home in the world and yet you created that ghastly
Windows. I'm going to do something I've never done before.
I'm going to let you decide where you want to go!"
Mr. Gates replied, "Well, thanks, Lord. What's the difference
between the two?"
God said, "You can take a peek at both places briefly if it will
help you decide. Shall we look at Hell first?"
"Sure!" said Bill. "Let's go!"
Bill was amazed! He saw a clean, white sandy beach with
clear waters. There were thousands of beautiful women
running around, playing in the water, laughing and frolicking
about. The sun was shining and the temperature
was just perfect!
Bill said, "This is great! If this is Hell, I can't wait to see Heaven!"
To which God replied, "Let's go!" and off they went. Bill saw puffy
white clouds in a beautiful blue sky with angels drifting
about playing harps and singing. It was nice, but surely not as
enticing as Hell. Mr. Gates thought for only a brief moment
and rendered his decision.
"God, I do believe I would like to go to Hell."
"As you desire," said God.
Two weeks later, God decided to check up on the late
billionaire to see how things were going.
He found Bill shackled to a wall,
screaming among the hot flames in a dark cave.
He was being burned and tortured by demons.
"How ya doin', Bill?" asked God. Bill responded with
anguish and despair.
"This is awful! This is not what I expected at all!
What happened to the beach and the beautiful women
playing in the water?"
"Oh, THAT!" said God. "That was the screen saver"
