Traditional Publishing not the Easiest Way into Hell

Things have changed since my last visit to Hell. When I tried to get in, the lady in the lobby said, “Take a number and abandon all hope.”
I asked, “Is there a easier way to get into Hell?”
The lady asked, “Have you tried traditional publishing?”

I summoned the demon of traditional publishing.
From behind a desk, with horns held high and glasses lowered, the demon asked, “You dare to submit without an agent?”
I cried out, “I submit.”
The demon said, “To the slush pile! Your submissions are unworthy.”

The agent said, “We aren’t taking submissives, I mean, submissions right now.”

It’s getting harder and harder to get into Hell these days.
