There they were, the two most powerful beings in the universe standing side by side, arms folded, watching a game of tennis doubles at Heavens Court. This particular match had Arthur Ashe and JFK facing Ulysses S. Grant and the late The Match Game host Gene Rayburn.

Ashe had just aced a serve, the ball whistling past the astounded Grant who stood frozen chomping on his stogie. God ran his fingers through his long white hair and shook his head.

“C’mon G-Man,” the Devil chuckled. “You don’t really think Grant played much tennis back in the day.”

“It’s not that. It’s the damn shorts they’re all wearing,” said the Lord. Sure enough, all four players wore the same garish shorts Stan Wavrinka had on during his French Open Finals match against Novak Djokovic.

God, hands in his robes pockets shook his head in disgust. “That Wavrinka looked like a Jiffy Lube guy who forgot to put his pants on.” The Devil returned the comment with a wicked grin.

“Don’t tell me you were the one behind this!” said the Master of the Universe.

The Devil proudly nodded. “Yep. And I threw in a little extra. I mean how could I let a guy like that look that ridiculous without winning?”
