A joke!

Here is a joke that was sent to me this morning from a friend in Edmonton:

Two guys from Prince George die and wake up in hell.
The next day the devil stops in to check on them and
sees them dressed in parkas, mittens and toques
warming themselves around the fire.
The devil asks them, "What are you doing? Isn't it hot
enough for you?"
The two guys reply, "Well, you know, we're from Canada,
the land of snow and ice and cold. We're just happy for a
chance to warm up a little bit, eh."
The devil decides that these two aren't miserable enough
and turns up the heat.
The next morning he stops in again and there they are,
still dressed in parkas, toques and mittens. The devil asks
them again, "It's awfully hot down here, can't you guys feel it?"
Again the two guys reply, "Well, like we told ya yesterday,
we're from Canada, the land of snow and ice and cold.
We're just happy for a chance to warm up a little bit, eh."
This gets the devil a little steamed up and he decides to fix
these two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it will go.
The people are wailing and screaming everywhere.
He stops by the room with the two guys from Canada and
finds them in light jackets and bucket hats, grilling sausage
and drinking beer. The devil is astonished, "Everyone down
here is in abject misery, and you two seem to be enjoying
The two Canadians reply, "Well, ya know, we don't get too
much warm weather up there in Prince George so we've
just got to have a cook-out when the weather's THIS nice."
The devil is absolutely furious, he can hardly see straight.
Finally he comes up with the answer. The two guys love
the heat because they have been cold all their lives.
The devil decides to turn all the heat off in hell.
The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are
hanging everywhere; people are shivering so bad that they
are unable to do anything but wail, moan, and gnash their teeth.
The devil smiles and heads for the room with the two Canadians.
He gets there and finds them back in their parkas, toques, and
mittens. NOW they are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling
and screaming like mad men!!!
The devil is dumbfounded, "I don't understand, when I turn
up the heat you're happy. Now it's freezing cold and you're still
happy. What is wrong with you two???"
The Prince Georgians look at the devil in surprise, "Well, don't
you know? If hell freezes over, it must mean the Canucks have
won the Stanley Cup!!!"
