We’ve lived in this country for almost two years, and today is the first time I’ve actually heard a good joke about Belize. It goes like this…

A man dies and goes to hell. He discovers that there are different hells for each country.

First he goes to the German Hell and asks what they do there. Well, the German sinners say, first they put you in an electric chair for an hour. Then they lay you on a bed of nails for an hour. Then the German Devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.

The man doesn’t like this so he moves on. He goes to the American Hell, the Canadian Hell, and the British Hell, and discovers that they are all the same.

Finally, he comes across a very long line of people waiting to get in and asks, “Which Hell is this?” Someone tells him, “Oh, this is the Belizean Hell.”

“What do they do in here?” he asks.

“Well, first they put you in an electric chair for an hour, then they lay you on a bed of nails for an hour, then the Belizean Devil comes in and whips you for the rest of the day.”

“But that is just like all the other Hells,” the man protests. “Why is the line so long?”

“Cause inna de Belizean Hell, the electricity always lock off, the electric chair naah work, sumbady done tief all di nail dem, and di Belizean Devil is a public servant, so he comes in, gets on the phone for two hours and then go to the Rum Bar or casino or fu play domino fi di rest a di day!”
