dinnertime in heaven and hell

Wednesday morning storytime...

'It's dinnertime in heaven and hell.

In both places, meals are served at a huge round table with lots of delicious food in the center. The food is out of reach, however everyone's got really long forks.

In hell, everyone starves because, while they can reach the food with their forks, the forks are much longer than their arms, so nobody can turn a fork around and eat what's on the end of it.

In heaven, faced with the same problem, people eat well. How?

By feeding each other.'

From 'All Together Now: Common Sense for a Fair Economy' Jared Bernstein.
