Hotter than you-know-what

Two guys from Michigan die and wake up in hell. The devil stops to check on them and sees them dressed in parkas, mittens and bomber hats, warming themselves around the fire. The devil asks them, “What are you doing? Isn’t it hot enough for you?”

The two guys reply, “Well, you know, we’re from Michigan, the land of ice and snow and cold. We’re just happy for a chance to warm up a bit, ya know.”

The devil decides that these two aren’t miserable enough and turns up the heat. The next morning, he stops by again and there they are, still dressed in their winter gear. The devil asks again, “It’s awfully hot down here, can’t you guys feel that?”

“Well, like we told you yesterday, we’re from Michigan, the land of ice and snow and cold. We’re just happy to warm up a little bit, ya know.”

The devil gets steamed and decides to fix the two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it will go. People are wailing and screaming everywhere. He stops by the room with the two guys from Michigan and finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling sausage and drinking beer. The devil is astonished. “Everyone down here is in abject misery, and you seem to be enjoying yourselves.”

The two Michiganders reply, “Well, ya know, we don’t get too much warm weather in Michigan, so we’ve got to have a cookout when the weather is this nice.”

The devil is furious. Finally, he comes up with a plan. These two love the heat because they have been cold all their lives. He decides to turn all the heat in hell off.

The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering so badly, they are unable to wail, moan or gnash their teeth. The devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Michiganders. He finds them back in their parkas, mittens and hats,  jumping up and down and cheering. The devil was dumbfounded. “I don’t understand. When I turn the heat up, you’re happy. Now it’s freezing cold, and you’re happy. What is wrong with you two?”

The Michiganders look at the devil in surprise. “Well, don’t ya know? If hell froze over, that must mean the Lions won the Super Bowl!”
