Bill Gates in hell

Bill Gates goes to pur­ga­tory.

St Pe­ter says: “Now Bill, you have done some good things, and you have done some bad things. Now I am go­ing to let you de­cide where you want to go.”

First, St Pe­ter shows Bill an im­age of hell with beau­ti­ful women run­ning on beaches. Then, St Pe­ter shows Bill an im­age of heaven with robed an­gels play­ing harps on clouds. Bill chooses hell. About a week later, St Pe­ter checks in on Bill in hell and finds him be­ing whipped by de­mons.

Bill says to St Pe­ter: “What hap­pened to all the beau­ti­ful women and the beaches?”

St Pe­ter replies: “That was just the screen saver.”
