A Critic, after a life devoted to spoiling the pleasure of others, was astonished to find himself roasting in eternal hellfire. “Judge not, lest ye be Judged,” giggled a passing fiend, and all Hades rocked with laughter at this wit.
Moral: When you have all Eternity to get through, it is a blessing to be among those who are easily amused.
