From the Depths of Hell
One day in hell while Satan is making his rounds he comes across a farmer from
Saskatchewan, who does not appear at all discomforted by the heat while
performing his labours in hell.
Satan asks the farmer why he doesn't seem bothered by the heat. The farmer
says, "Why this is just a like a typical summer day in Saskatchewan."
Hearing this Satan proceeds to crank up the fires of hell to get to the farmer.
A little while later, Satan checks in on the farmer, who is still happily
working away at his labours, with only a little trickle of sweat coming off
Satan asks again why the farmer is not bothered by the heat. The farmer
replies, "Oh, this is nothing, this is just a like a hot summer's day in
The devil gets pretty upset about this so he turns the heat way down. He goes
back to the farmer who is still happily performing his labours.
Satan asks again and the farmer replies, "Oh, this is just like a typical
winter day in Saskatchewan."
Satan's pretty perturbed by now so he turns the heat right off. Icicles formed
everywhere. The fires of hell are covered with a thick layer of ice. All the
minor demons and devils are wearing their overcoats and longjohns.
Satan heads back to farmer and sees him jumping up and down all excited. Satan
asks why he is so happy? The farmer replies, "THE LEAFS HAVE WON THE CUP! THE
TORONTO MAPLE LEAFS HAVE WON THE STANLEY CUP!"
