St. Peter seeks out Lucifer
It seems that there's a fence between Heaven and Hell, which is cared for in alternate aeons by the two sides. It has fallen into disrepair.
St. Peter seeks out Lucifer.
'Hey Lou, it's your turn to fix the fence. The Boss says it looks awful. Get it done.'
'I don't care how it looks,' says Lucifer. 'I'm not doing anything.'
'You have to,' says St. Peter. 'It's your official obligation. We have a contract to that effect. You're committed.'
'I don't give a fig for any contract,' says Lucifer, 'as you should know by now, I don't care what it says -- I'm not going to do anything.'
'You have to,' insists St. Peter. 'The law is the law. If you force us to, we'll have to sue you.'
'Sue me?' cries Lucifer, breaking into that famous nasty laugh, 'Where are YOU gonna get a lawyer?'
