Regarding the year 2000, a senior at University of Maine was overheard saying "when the end of the world comes, I hope to be in "Maine" When asked why, he stated that everything happens here 20 years later than the rest of the civilized world.

A group of Maine friends went deer hunting and paired off in twos for the day. That night, one of the hunters returned alone, staggering under the weight of an eight-point buck. "Where's Harry?" the others asked.

"Dave had a stroke of some kind. He's a couple of miles back up the trail," the successful hunter replied.

"You left Harry laying out there and carried the deer back?" they inquired.

"A tough call," nodded the hunter. "But I figured no one is going to steal Dave!

A curious fellow died one day and found himself waiting in the long 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 doing.

"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?"

"Oh those " Satan groaned. "They're all from Maine. They're still too cold and wet to burn!"

Some engineers from the U.S.G.S. surveyed some property and found that in a area, the New Hampshire and Maine border must be changed. They stopped to inform a farmer that he was no longer in Maine, but in New Hampshire.

After a long pause, he grunted and said, "That's good. I couldn't take another one of these Maine winters."

Didn't he say, "Aaaayyup," first?
