My mom emailed this to me, I thought it was pretty funny.
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God was missing for six
Eventually, Michael, the archangel, found him resting on the seventh
He inquires of God, "Where have you been?"
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction and proudly pointed
downward through the clouds. "Look, Michael, look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled and said, "What is it?"

earth. There are beautiful beaches, lakes, and climate. The water that is
surrounding the Cape keeps it pleasant in the summer, with cool
ocean breeze; while this same water keeps the winters mild. The ocean
provides an abundance of fresh seafood. The people from Cape Cod are going to be
modest, intelligent, and humorous, and they are going to be found traveling
the world. They will be extremely sociable, hardworking, and high achieving
people, and they will be known throughout the world as diplomats and
carriers of peace."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then exclaimed, "What

everything seems so totally perfect in this place you call Cape
God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the idiots I'm sending
there on vacation every summer."
