> There was a huge nut tree by the cemetery fence. One day two boys filled
> up a bucketful of nuts and sat down by the tree, out of sight, and began
> dividing the nuts. "One for you, one for me. One  for you, one for me,"
> said one boy. The bucket was so full,  several rolled out towards the
> fence.
> Cycling down the road by the cemetery was a third boy. As he passed, he
> thought he heard voices from inside the cemetery. 
> He  slowed down to investigate. Sure enough, he heard, "One for you, 
> one for me. One for you." 
> He knew what it was. "Oh my god!" he shuddered, 
> "It's Satan and St. Peter dividing the souls at the cemetery!"
> He cycled down the road and found an old man with a cane, hobbling along.
> "Come quick!" he said, "You won't believe what I heard. Satan and St.
> Peter are down at the cemetery dividing the souls." 
> The man said, "Shoo, you brat! Can't you see I'm finding it hard to walk
> as it is!"
> After several pleas, the man hobbled to the cemetery and  heard, "One for
> you, one for me. One for you, one..." 
> The old man  whispered, "Boy, you's been tellin' the truth! Let's see if
> we can see the Devil himself."
> Shivering with fear, they edged toward the fence, still unable to see
> anything, but they heard, "One for you, one for me. One for you, one for
> me. And one last one for you.  That's all.  Let's go get  those nuts by
> the fence, and we'll be done."
> They say the old guy made it to town 10 minutes before the 
> boy!
