You're not so scary, after all.

A few minutes before a church service started, the congregation was sitting and chatting, when all of a sudden, of all people, Satan appeared at the front of the church.

The people started screaming and running for the front entrance, trampling each other in a frantic effort to get away from the evil one. Soon the church was empty except for one elderly gentleman who sat calmly in his pew without moving, seemingly oblivious to the fact that God's ultimate enemy was in his presence.

Satan walked up to the man and said, "don't you know who I am?"

The man replied, "yep, sure do."

"Aren't you afraid of me?"

"Nope, sure ain't."

"Don't you realize I can kill you with one word?" said Satan.

"Don't doubt it for a minute."

"Did you know I can cause you profound horrifying agony for all eternity?"

"Yep," said the old man.

"And you're still not afraid of me?"

"Nope," said the old man.

More than a little perturbed, Satan asked, "well, why aren't you afraid of me?"

The man replied, "been married to your sister for 48 years."
