: More Tall Tales from a Country Church! (Humor)

More Tall Tales from a Country Church! (Humor)

At an old country church before services started yesterday, the congregation was sitting in their pews and talking.

All of a sudden Satan appeared at the front of the church.
The congregation panicked and everyone was screaming and running for the front entrance in an effort to get away from the Devil. 
devil (sxc)Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving.  He seemed to be oblivious to the fact that God’s ultimate enemy was in his presence.
Satan was puzzled by this.  So he walked up to the man and said, "Do you know who I am?" 
The man replied, “Yep, sure do.”
“Aren’t you afraid of me?” Satan asked.
“Nope, sure ain’t,” said the man.
“Did you know that I can cause you profound, horrifying AGONY for all eternity?” Satan persisted.
“Don’t doubt it for a minute,” replied the old man, in an even tone.
“And you are still not afraid?” asked Satan.
“Nope,” said the old man
More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, “Why aren’t you afraid of me?”
The man calmly replied, “Been married to your sister for 48 years.”

Well at least the marriage seems to have lasted well if he has gotten 48 years out of the ordeal.
