Gabriel came to the
Lord and said "I have to talk to you. We have
some Armenians up here in the heaven who are
causing problems. They're swinging on the pearly
gates, my horn is missing, chemen and barbecue
sauce is all over their robes, their dogs are
riding the chariots, and they're wearing
baseball caps and cowboy hats instead of their
halos. They refuse to keep the stairway to
Heaven clean. There are watermelon seeds all
over the place. Some of them are even walking
around with just one wing!"
The Lord said, "Armenians are Armenians,
Gabriel. Heaven is home to all my children, even
if they are Armenians. If you want to know about
real problems, call the Devil."
The Devil answered the phone, "Hello Gabriel...?
Damn it, hold on a minute."
The Devil returned to
the phone, "OK I'm back. What can I do for you?"
Gabriel replied, "I
just wanted to know what kind of problems you're
having down there at your end."
Devil said, "Hold on again. I need to check on
something." After about 5 minutes the Devil
returned to the phone and said, "I'm back. Now
what was the question?"
Gabriel said, "Tell me what kind of problems are
you having down there?"
The Devil excitedly
said, "Man I don't believe this.......Hold on
This time the Devil was gone for at least 15
minutes. The Devil returned and said, "I'm sorry
cousin Gabriel, I can't talk right now. Those
damn Armenians have put out the fire down here
and are trying to install instead air
conditioning in Hell.....!!!! I can't believe
such unruliness...!!! I wonder if you would
consider taking them back in Heaven...???"
