A Texan, a Floridian and a Californian all die and go to hell. While there, they spy a red phone and ask what the phone is for.
The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth.
The Texan asks to call Dallas and talks for five minutes. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is one million dollars, so the Texan writes him a check.
Next the Floridian calls Miami and talks for 30 minutes. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is six million dollars, so he writes him a check.
Finally, the Californian gets his turn, he calls San Francisco and talks for four hours. When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is five dollars.
When the Texan hears this, he goes ballistic and asks the devil why the Californian got to call San Francisco so cheaply.
The devil smiles and replies, “Since Gavin Newsome took over, the state has gone to hell, so it’s a local call.”
