A guy from Philadelphia dies and is sent to Hell. He had been a horrible man
his entire life. The devil puts him to work breaking up rocks with a
sledgehammer. To make it worse he cranks up the temperature and the humidity.
After a couple of days, the devil checks in on his victim to see if he is
suffering adequately. The devil is aghast as the Philadelphian is happily
swinging his hammer and whistling a happy tune.
The devil walks up to him and says, "I don't understand this. I've turned the
heat way up, it's humid, you're crushing rocks; why are you so happy?"
The Philadelphian, with a big smile, looks at the devil and replies, "This is
great! It reminds me of August in Philadelphia. Hot, humid, a good place to
work. It reminds me of home. This is fantastic!"
The devil, extremely perplexed, walks away to ponder the Philadelphian's
remarks. Then he decides to drop the temperature, send down a driving rain and
torrential wind. Soon, Hell is a wet, muddy mess. Walking in mud up to his
knees with dust blowing into his eyes, the Philadelphian is happily slogging
through the mud pushing a wheelbarrow full of crushed rocks.
Again, the devil asks how he can be happy in such conditions.
The Philadelphian replies, "This is great! Just like April in Philadelphia. It
reminds me of working out in the yard with spring planting!"
The devil is now completely baffled but more determined to make the
Philadelphian suffer. He makes the temperature plummet. Suddenly Hell is
blanketed in snow and ice. Confident that this will surely make the
Philadelphian unhappy, the devil checks in on him. He is again aghast at what
he sees. The Philadelphian is dancing, singing, and twirling his sledgehammer
as he cavorts in glee.
"How can you be so happy? Don't you know its 40 below zero!?" screams the
Jumping up and down the Philadelphian throws a snowball at the devil and yells,
"Hell's frozen over!! This means the Eagles won the SuperBowl !!
