Two Guys From The U.P.
Two guys from the Upper Peninsula of Michigan die and wake up in Hell.
The next day the Devil stops in to check on them and sees them dressed
in parkas, mittens and bomber hats warming themselves around the fire.
The Devil asks them, "What are you doing? Isn't it hot enough for you?"
The two guys reply, "Vell, ya know, we're from nordern Michigan, the
land and of snow and ice and cold. We're just happy for a chance to
warm up a little bit, ya know."
The Devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough and turns up
the heat. The next morning he stops in again and there they are, still
dressed in parkas, hats and mittens. The Devil asks them again, "Its
awfully hot down here, can't you guys feel that?" Again the two guys
reply, "Vell, like we told you yesterday, we're from nordern Michigan,
the land of snow and ice and cold. We're just happy for a chance to
warm up a vee bit, ya know."
This gets the Devil quite steamed so he decides to fix the two guys.
He cranks the heat up as high as it will go. The people are wailing and
screaming every where. He stops by the room with the two guys from
Michigan and finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling walleye
and drinking beer. The Devil is astonished, "Everyone down here is in
abject misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourself." The two
Michiganders reply, "Vell, ya know, we don't get too much varm weather up dere in
da UP, we've just got to have a fish fry when the veather's this nice."
The Devil is absolutely furious; he can hardly see straight. Finally
he comes up with the answer. The two guys love the heat because they have
been cold all their lives. The Devil decides to turn all the heat off
in Hell. The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are
hanging everywhere, people are shivering so bad that they are unable
to wail, moan and gnash their teeth.
The Devil smiles and heads for the
room with the two Michiganders. He gets there and finds them back in
their parkas, bomber hats, and mittens. They are jumping up and down,
cheering, yelling and screaming like mad men. The Devil is dumb
founded, "I don't understand, when I turn up the heat you're happy. Now its
freezing cold and you're still happy. What is wrong with you two?" The
Michiganders look at the Devil in surprise, "Vell, don't ya know, if
Hell froze over dat must mean da Lions von da super bowl . . . .
