The devil was holding a meeting with all of his little demons.
He stood up and said, “Well, you poor, useless lot of sissies, this guy Jesus is putting too much good into the world. You time-wasters make me sick. You came to hell to make their lives a misery. Instead, you waste your time playing silly games. What are you going to do about it?”
Just then, a small demon — quite new to the job and very timid — sheepishly said, “Oh Lord of Great Darkness, I know I’m not as powerful as you, but may I make a suggestion? It seems to me if we could build them up and knock them down, the pain would be so great that we could soon gain control.”
Just as he said that, a more experienced demon said, “You mean golf?”
The devil himself interrupts saying, “Steady old man. We don’t want to finish them off that quick.”
