Two men from International Falls, Minnesota, die and wake up in hell. Next day the devil checks on them and sees them dressed in parkas,mittens and bomber hats, warming themselves around the fire.
The devil asks them, "What`re you doing? Isn`t it hot enough for you?"
The two guys reply, "Veil, ya know, ve`re from nor-dern Minn-e-so-ta, da land of snow `n ice `n cold `n all dat dere. Ve`re chust happy for a chance to varm up a bit, ya know."
The devil decides these two aren`t miserable enough and turns up the heat. Next morning he comes back again and there they are, still dressed in parkas, hats and mittens. The devil asks them again, "It`s awfully hot down here, can`t you guys feel that?"
Again the two guys reply, "Veil, like ve told you yesterday, ve`re from nor-dern Minn-e-so-ta, da land of snow, `n ice, `n cold, `n all dat dere. Ve`re chust happy for a chance to varm up a bit."
This gets the devil really steamed up and he decides to fix the two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it`ll go. People are wailing and screaming everywhere. He stops by the room with the two guys from Minnesota and finds them in light jackets and hats, grilling walleye and drinking beer.
The devil is astonished. "Everyone down here is in abject misery and you two seem to be enjoying yourselves."
The two Minnesotans reply, "Veil, ya know, ya don`t get too much varm veather up dere in International Falls. Ye chust got to have a fish fry when the veather`s this nice."
The devil is absolutely furious; he can hardly see straight.Finally he comes up with the answer. These guys love the heat because they`ve been cold all their lives. So the devil decides to turn off all the heat in hell. Next morning, the temperature is below zero; icicles are hanging everywhere; and people are shivering so bad they`re unable to wail, moan, and gnash their teeth. Finally, the devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Minnesotans. He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, bomber hats, and mittens. They`re jumping up and down, cheering, yelling, and screaming like madmen. The devil is dumbfounded and says, "I don`t understand it. When I turn up the heat, you`re happy. Now it`s freezing cold and you`re still happy.
What`s wrong with you two?"
The Minnesotans look at the devil in surprise and explain, "Veil, don`t ya know. If hell freezes over, dat means da Vikings von da Super Bowl!"
