Beware the kindness...
A politician passes away and ascends to the pearly gates. There he meets St.Peter who explains to him that at this point he will have the option of spending his eternal after life in heaven or in hell. I will give you a guided tour of heaven and then bring you back here where Lucifer will then take you on a tour of hell.
They begin walking around all of the golden laid streets and see all of these people walking around in white gowns in a most nonchalant manner. There was no feeling coming from them at all so he asks Peter what was the deal. Peter explained that once in heaven there are no more tears, or pain, or suffering and people are just happy to be.
Finally the tour led back to the gate where Lucifer was waiting impatiently reaching out to grab the politician and head down. He tells him he wants to hurry up and get away from all these dead heads and back to where the fun is. As they get to the gates of hell the politician can hear music and laughter. AS soon as they get through the gates he can see a huge party going on with dancing and all kinds of partying. Everyone is all happy to greet and welcome him with all kinds of attention.
At this point they head back to St.Peter so that he can make his choice. St. Peter asks the politician where he wants to spend eternity. The politician looks and him and explains he can't believe he is going to say this, but heaven was so boring with what seemed like nothing to do and hell was so exciting and filled with all kinds of activities so I have to chose hell. Peter says ok the choice is made and can not be reversed.
As Lucifer and the politician is heading back down the politician has a great big smile on his face thinking of an eternity of parties that are about to be had. Then they get to the gates and there are no more parties or people laughing as now they are all screaming in pain and suffering. He looks to Lucifer and asks what is going on? Where are all the parties that were going on the last time we were here?
Lucifer looks him straight in the eye and says " We were campaigning"
