Engineering in Hell

An engineer dies and reports to Hell. Pretty soon, the enginer becomes dissatisfied with the level of comfort in Hell, and starts designing and building improvements. After a while, Hell is equipped with air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators. And the engineer is a pretty popular guy.

One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer: “So, how's it going down there in hell?”

Satan replies: “Hey, things are going great. We've got air conditioning and flush toilets and escalators, and there's no telling what this engineer is going to come up with next.”

God replies: “What??? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake – he should never have gotten down there. Send him up here.”

Satan says: “No way, I like having an engineer on the staff, and I'm keeping him.”

God says: “Send him back up here or I'll sue.”

Satan laughs uproariously and answers: “Yeah, right. And just where are you going to get a lawyer?”
