Told to me by my brother, a Wall Street lawyer: A fifth year associate at a Wall Street law firm was toiling at his office one midnight, when who should appear before him but Satan. "I understand you'd give anything to make partner," said the devil, "so I've come here to make you an offer." The lawyer, knowing full well the craftiness of the devil, said with not a little suspicion, "Go on, I'm listening." "Well," said Satan, "I'll make you a partner, but in return I want your soul damned to the depths of hell. And along with yours, I want your wife's, your childrens', your grandchildrens', your great-grand- childrens', your great-great-grandchildrens', and so on, for eternity." After considering the proposal for a moment, the lawyer replied with suspicion, "What's the catch?"
