Bin Laden's Choice|
One day in the future, Osama bin Laden has a heart attack and dies.
He immediately goes to hell, where the devil is waiting for him. "I
don't know what to do here," says the devil. "You are on my list, but
I have no room for you. You definitely have to stay here, so I'll tell
you what I'm going to do. I've got a couple of folks here who weren't
quite as bad as you. I'll let one of them go, but you have to take
their place. I'll even let YOU decide who leaves."
Osama thought that sounded pretty good, so he agreed.
The devil opened the first room; in it was Richard Nixon and a large
pool of water. He kept diving in and surfacing empty handed -- over
and over and over.
Such was his fate in hell. "No," bin Laden said. "I
don't think so. I'm not a good swimmer and I don't think I could
do that all day long."
The devil led him to the next room; in it was Tony
Blair with a sledgehammer and a room full of rocks. All he
did was swing that hammer, time after time after time.
"No, I've got this problem with my shoulder. I would be in constant agony if all I
could do was break rocks all day," commented Osama bin Laden.
The devil opened a third door. In it, Osama saw Bill Clinton, lying on
the floor with his arms staked over his head, and his legs staked in a
spread eagle pose. Bent over him was Monica Lewinsky, doing what she
Osama bin Laden looked at this in disbelief for a while and
finally said, "Yeah, I can handle this."
The devil smiled and said, "OK, Monica, you're free to go."
