Minnesotans in Warmer Climes...
Two guys from International Falls, Minnesota, die and wake up in
Hell. The next day the Devil
stops in 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, “Vell, ya know, we’re from
Nordern Minnesoda, the land of snow and ice and cold.
We’re just happy for a chance to warm up a little bit, ya
The Devil decides that these two aren’t miserable
enough and turns up the heat. The
next morning he stops in again and there they are, still dressed in
parkas, hats and mittens. The
Devil asks them again, “Its awfully hot down here, can’t you guys feel
Again the two guys reply, “Vell, like we told you
yesterday, we’re from Nordern Minnesoda, the land of snow and ice and
cold. We’re just happy for
a chance to warm up a little bit, ya know.”
This gets the Devil a little steamed up and he decides
to fix the two guys. He
cranks the heat up as high as it will go.
The people are wailing and screaming everywhere.
He stops by the room with the two guys from Minnesoda and finds
them in light jackets and hats, grilling walleye and drinking beer. The Devil is astonished.
“Everyone down here is in abject misery, and you two seem to be
The two Minnesodans reply, “Vell, ya know, we don’t
get too much warm weather up dere in International Falls, we’ve just got
to have a fish fry when the weather’s this nice.”
The Devil is absolutely furious, he can hardly see
straight. Finally he comes up
with the answer. The two guys
love the heat because they have been cold all their lives.
The Devil decides to turn all the heat off in Hell...
Before long, icicles are hanging everywhere, people are
shivering so bad that they are unable to wail, moan and gnash their teeth.
The Devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Minnesodans.
He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats, and
mittens. They are jumping up
and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like madmen.
The Devil is dumbfounded. “I
don’t understand -- when I turn up the heat you’re happy.
Now it’s freezing cold and you’re still happy. What is wrong with you two?”
