The devil's offer
The devil visited a lawyer's office and made him an offer. "I can arrange some things for you, " the devil said. "I'll increase your income five-fold. Your partners will love you; your clients will respect you; you'll have four months of vacation each year and live to be a hundred. All I require in return is that your wife's soul, your children's souls, and their children's souls rot in hell for eternity."

The lawyer thought for a moment. "What's the catch?" he asked.

"what's the catch": 有什么内幕/陷阱?
笑话的主题是嘲笑律师的。意思是在律师的眼里wife's soul, children's souls, etc. 不值什么,所以律师不相信devil's offer.
I like to be here, to be with you, to sense your presence all the time.
