April 10, 1992

On April 10, 1992, just outside Needles, California, comedian Sam Kinison died when his car was struck by a pickup truck on a desert road between Los Angeles and Las Vegas. He went immediately to hell and the devil looked up with surprise and said, “Sam, you’re not supposed to be here until sometime next year? What happen?” Sam said, “It’s the craziest thing, a 17 year old kid was driving drunk and crossed the center line and crashed into me.” The devil asked him, “Were you wearing a seat-belt?” Sam said, “Man, you know how I hate those things.” The devil replied sarcastically (because that’s the only way he can reply), “Yeah, and that’s why you’re here now, instead of in Vegas doing blow of a stripper’s butt. Now pick yourself up and follow me. You’ve been married twice, so you qualify for our job placement program as nothing here’s going to phase you.” And that’s how Sam Kinison became a tour guide in hell.
