Go to Hell!

It was Bill Gates' turn at the gate of heaven.

"Well, Bill," said God, "I'm really confused on this
one. I'm not sure whether to send you to Heaven or
Hell! After all, you helped society enormously by
putting a computer in almost every home in the world
and yet you created that ghastly Windows. I'm going
to do something I've never done before. I'm going to
let you decide where you want to go!"

Mr. Gates replied, "Well, thanks, Lord. What's the
difference between the two?"

God said, "You can take a peek at both places
briefly if it will help you decide. Shall we look at
Hell first?"

"Sure!" said Bill. "Let's go!"

Bill was amazed! He saw a clean, white sandy beach
with clear waters. There were thousands of beautiful
women running around, playing in the water, laughing
and frolicking about. The sun was shining and the
temperature was just perfect!

Bill said, "This is great! If this is Hell, I can't
wait to see Heaven!"

To which God replied, "Let's go!" and off they went.
Bill saw puffy white clouds in a beautiful blue sky
with angels drifting about playing harps and
singing. It was nice, but surely not as enticing as
Hell. Mr. Gates thought for only a brief moment and
rendered his decision. "God, I do believe I would
like to go to Hell."

"As you desire," said God.

Two weeks later, God decided to check up on the late
billionaire to see how things were going. He found
Bill shackled to a wall, screaming among the hot
flames in a dark cave. He was being burned and
tortured by demons.

"How ya doin', Bill?" asked God.

Bill responded with anguish and despair. "This is
awful! This is not what I expected at all! What
happened to the beach and the beautiful women
playing in the water?"

"Oh, THAT!" said God. "That was the SCREEN SAVER!"
