St. Peter and the Billionaire

ill Gates arrives at the Pearly Gates. "Welcome, Mr. Gates!" St. Peter says. "Since you're such a notable person, my Boss has authorized me to let you choose your own eternity." Gates smiles. "Well, yes, that is only right." Peter leads him to what appears to be a peaceful park, where old men are playing chess on a bench, mothers watch young children on the playground, and older kids have a touch-football game going. "OK, not bad", Gates says, "how about my other choice?" Peter leads him to a beach, where there is a volleyball game going on, a keg of beer, and beautiful women in skimpy bikinis. Gates smiles again. "This is what I want." Peter shrugs, and Gates is sucked into a fiery vortex, amid the laughter of demons.

As Gates disappears into the fiery pit, he yells at St. Peter, "What about the beach? What about the babes?" St. Peter says, "Bill, that was the demo."
