Sounds about right.

Sent to me by a friend who would know...

Judgment Day

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in the long
line of judgment. As he stood there he noticed that some souls were
allowed to march right through the pearly gates into Heaven. Others
though, were led over to Satan who threw them into the burning pit.
But every so often, instead of hurling a poor soul into the fire,
Satan would toss a soul off to one side into a small pile.

After watching Satan do this several times, the fellow's curiosity
got the best of him. So he strolled over and asked Satan what he was

"Excuse me, Prince of Darkness," he said. "I'm waiting in line for
judgment, but I couldn't help wondering, why are you tossing those
people aside instead of flinging them into the Fires of Hell with
the others?"

"Ah, those . . ." Satan said with a groan. "They're all from upstate
New York
. They're still too cold and wet to burn.
