Are there call centers in Hell?
Pope Horatio Tyrannosaurus Nixon Rex of the Church of Nixon Incarnate notes that Texas appears to be about to be annexed by Hell, noting that most Texans probably won't notice any difference anyhow. Toxic fumes? Check. Fiery weather? Check. Unbreathable air? Check. Water that burns the throat going down and rots out your gut once it gets to the bottom? Check.
Which brings up the question of, if Hell is like Texas (and vice-versa), are there call centers in Hell? My suspicion is that the answer to that question is, why, YES! You must admit that it explains a few things, such as the vague smell of brimstone when you connect to a computer manufacturer's technical support hotline, or that the directions you get from the technical support person appear to be in Modern Demonic rather than in plain English...

That's strange. Every time *I* call tech support, it's like I'm talking to the old Indian guy in "Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom". Not that it matters, though: we all know outsourcing is "good" for the economy.
