 Satan & the Engineer.

 An engineer dies and reports to the pearly gates.  St. Peter checks his
 dossier and says, 'Ah, you're an engineer.  You're in the wrong place'.
 So the engineer reports to the gates of hell and is let in.  Pretty soon,
 the engineer gets dissatisfied with the level of comfort in hell, and
 starts designing and building improvements.  After a while, they've got
 air-conditioning and flushing toilets and escalators, and the engineer is
 a pretty popular guy.
 One day God calls Satan up on the telephone and says with a sneer, 'So,
 how's it going down there in hell?'
 Satan replies, 'Hey, things are going great.  We've got air-conditioning,
 flushing toilets, and escalators, and there's no telling what this
 engineer is going to come up with next.'
 God replies, 'What? You've got an engineer? That's a mistake.  He should
 never have been sent down there; send him up here.  All we have are
 architects.  Everything looks pretty, but nothing works.'
 Satan says, 'No way. I like having an engineer on the staff and I'm
 keeping him'.  God says, 'Send him back up here or I'll sue.'
 Satan laughs uproariously and answers,  'Yeah, right.  And just where are
 YOU going to get a lawyer?'
