Virginia Virtues

        (even non-Virginians should love this one.)

        God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael, the
archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.

        He inquired, "Where have you been?"

        God smiled deeply and proudly pointed downwards through the
        clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."

        Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"

        "It's a planet," replied God, and I've put life on it.

        I'm going to call it Earth and it's going to be a place to
test Balance."

        "Balance?" inquired Michael, "I'm still confused."

        God explained, pointing to different parts of Earth.

        "For example, northern Europe will be a place of great
        opportunity and wealth, while southern Europe is going to be poor.

        Over here I've placed a continent of white people, and over
        there is a continent of black people. Balance in all things."

        God continued pointing to different countries.

        "This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be
        very cold and covered in ice."

        The Archangel , impressed by God's work, then pointed to a
        land area and said, "What's that one?"

        "That's Virginia , the most glorious place on earth.
        There are beautiful mountains, rivers and streams, lakes,
forests, hills, and plains.
        The people from Virginia are going to be handsome, modest,
        intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to travel the world.
        They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, high
        achieving, carriers of peace, and producers of good things"

        Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then asked,
        "But what about balance, God? You said there would be balance."

        God smiled, "Right next to Virginia is Washington ,
D.C....Wait till you see the idiots I put there."
