An environmentalist dies and reports to the pearly gates. St. Peter
checks his dossier and says, 'Ah, you're an environmentalist - you're in the
wrong place.' Thinking that heaven could never make an error, the
environmentalist reports to the gates of hell and is let in.
Pretty soon, the environmentalist gets dissatisfied with the environment
in hell, and starts implementing eco-friendly improvements. After a while,

covered with grass and plants, the food is organic and the people are happy.

should never have gotten down there, send him up here.'
Satan says, 'No way. I like having an environmentalist on the staff, and
I'm keeping him.'
God says, 'Send him back up here or I'll sue.'
Satan laughs uproariously and answers, 'Yeah, right. And just where are you
going to get a lawyer?'
