    There is a head-on collision on highway 10 near Palm Springs and two young men vacationing from Boston are killed and end up in Hell.

    The next day, the Devil stops in to check on them and sees them dressed in warm clothes with a heavy coat, ski cap and mittens warming themselves around the fire.

    The Devil asks them, "What are you doing? Isn't it hot enough for you here in Hell?"

    One of the men answers, "You know the weather has been quite warm in Southern California and we would have expected it to be as least as warm here."

    This gets the Devil a little steamed up and he decides to fix the two guys. He cranks the heat up as high as it will go.

    The next morning, people are wailing and screaming everywhere because of the intense heat. He rushes to the room with the two guys and finds them dressed as they were before still sitting by the fire and seeming to have a good time.

    The Devil is astonished, "Everyone down here is in misery, and you two seem to be enjoying yourself."

    "Well, actually it is more comfortable than the heat wave we were having back in California," is the response.

    Now the devil is so furious he can hardly see straight. Finally he comes up with the answer. "No matter how hot I make it, these men seem very comfortable. They must be comfortable because they are used to the heat," he decides. "I'll fix them. I'll turn the heat completely off!"

    The next morning, the temperature is below zero, icicles are hanging everywhere, and people are shivering unable to get themselves warm.

    The Devil smiles and rushes to the room with the two lads. When he gets there, he finds them still dressed in their winter clothes but now they are jumping up and down, cheering, yelling and screaming like mad.

    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 even more happy. What is wrong with you two?"

    The Bostonians look at the Devil and answer, "Hell is frozen over. That means that the Red Sox have won the World Series. The Curse is over!"
