A man died and found himself waiting in the long line of judgment. As he stood there, he noticed that some souls were allowed to march straight through the pearly gates into Heaven and others were led over to Satan, who then threw them into a burning pit. However he also observed that every now and again, instead of hurling poor souls into the fire, Satan would put them to one side on a separate pile.
After watching Satan do this several times, the man’s curiosity got the better of him, so he strolled over to Satan and said: “Excuse me, Prince of Darkness, I’m waiting in line for judgment, but I couldn’t help noticing that whereas you throw some people into the burning pit, you put others to one side.”
“Ah, those,” groaned Satan. “They’re all from Seattle; they’re too wet to burn.”
