A Conversation With The Devil
YOU AGAIN! !

YOU SAY THAT EVERY DAY! ! !
I know. But I think of ways you'll trick me and I back out. You are the Master of Deceit.
WELL, YOU GOT ME THERE.
This time my wish is perfect!
GO AHEAD, LET'S HEAR IT.
I want to be the richest person alive
and the smartest
and the strongest
and the most handsome.
I want to be the only man alive. That'll make me popular with the ladies!
And get rid of all the ugly women, no fatties or dogs.
And get rid of ...
A Conversation With God
Who? Who said that?
BOB, IT'S ME, GOD.
Oh Uh Hi.
I HAVEN'T HEARD FROM YOU IN A LONG TIME.

THE LAST TIME WE TALKED YOU WERE UNEMPLOYED.
Oh, yeah. But I love my new job.
HOW'S YOUR SON, DAVEY BOY? THE LAST I HEARD, YOU SAID HE WAS DEATHLY ILL.
