They say that knowledge is power, but wit is a talent that not everyone is born with. For one lucky man, that was the difference between freedom and hell.
Three men met outside the gates of hell and they were not in the best of moods. In fact, they are all angry because they believe they hadn't been that bad while they were alive.
One of them says, "this is ridiculous, I'm pretty sure we don't deserve to spend the rest of our time in the eternal hot box! There must be something we can do to get out of this."
Suddenly, Satan appears before them. "Oh, relax, there is and it is quite simple. All you have to do is withstand ten whippings and you're free to go," he says. "I'll even let you pick something to cover your backs with."
"That's it?" asks the first man, who happily scans the area with his eyes. After picking a large rock, he puts it on his back. "Go ahead."
Satan raises his whip and yells, "One!"
The rock splits in half and the man quickly backs away. "There's no way I'm doing this. I'm out." The second man steps up and presents his bare back to Satan."
"Are you sure?" asks Satan, to which the man replies with "I've trained my mind and body to ignore any unnecessary pain. I can handle it."
"Whatever, man, it's your back." Satam raises his whip and yells "One!"
The man flinches but doesn't complain, which surprises Satan. He raises his arm again and delivers another whipping. The man is in pain but doesn't move.
After the tenth whipping, Satan is absolutely furious. "Just get in here, you!" The third man switches places with the second one, who walks away suffering but happy.
"Come one, I don't have all day, pick something to put on your back" says Satan impatiently, cracking his whip.
Without a second thought, the man says, "I'll take the second dude, he's pretty good at this!"
Now that was one smart way to get out of punishment! Although the second man might not have liked the last one's idea too much. Did you like this joke?
Then don't miss the opportunity to check these other ones. Unlike a certain lady, you won't be disappointed. This elderly woman managed to seduce a young man and went to bed with him.
After the consummating the act, she turned around asked, "are you a doctor by any chance?" to which he replied "yes."
"An anesthesiologist, perhaps?" she insisted. The young man was surprised. "Yeah, how did you know?" The lady simply grabbed a pack of cigarettes and said "because I didn't feel a thing."
