Humor is an integral part of everybody’s life. Who doesn’t enjoy humor? Mark Twain said – “Humor is mankind’s greatest blessing.“
If we look at it from the reader’s point of view. it seems pretty much easy to laugh at a joke. On the other side, it’s most difficult to create a joke that everyone can laugh at!

To Hell and Back
“It’s all the same. Every time I look around, I see the couples fighting. It’s like being trapped in the same old loop!” The dead man said to God.
“You have been a lot. I do pity your situation.”
“Thank you, My Lord,” said he as he squirmed.
“What do you want now, heaven or hell or another life?”
“Honey, I’ve been waiting for you, come soon!” He overheard God’s wife calling him in.
Greedy for more, the man requested, “Another life with a beautiful and loving wife like yours.”
“Granted.” God made the judgment and left for his room.
The man sneaked in to overhear their conversation.
“I told you many times I want my coffee in bed every morning. Now get the hell out and bring in my coffee.”
Shocked, he saw God leave his room in pity.
“Maybe, hell would have been the right choice.”
Now, your turn!
