The Red Phone
An American, a Brit, and a Russian all died and went to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.The Russian asked to call Russia and talks for 5 minutes. When he was finished the devil informs him that the cost is a million dollars, so the Russian writes him a check.
Next the Brit calls England and talks for 30 minutes. When she was finished the devil informs her that cost is 6 million dollars, so the Brit writes him a check.
Finally the American gets his turn and talks for 4 hours. When he was finished the devil informed him that there would be no charge for the call and to feel free to call the USA anytime.
When the Russian hears this he goes ballistic and asks the devil why the American got to call the USA free.
The devil replied, “Since Obama became president of the USA, the country has gone to hell, so naturally it’s a local call.”
