When Seymour passed away, God greeted him at the Pearly Gates.
"Thou be hungry, Seymour?" saidth God.
"I could eat," Seymour replied.
So God opened a can of tuna and reached for a chunk of rye bread and
shared it. While eating this humble meal, Seymour looked down into Hell
saw the inhabitants devouring huge steaks, lobsters, pheasants, pastries
fine wines. Curious, but deeply trusting, Seymour remained quiet.
The next day God again invited Seymour to join him for a meal. Again,
was tuna and rye bread. Once again looking down, Seymour could see the
denizens of Hell enjoying caviar, champagne, lamb, truffles and
Still Seymour said nothing.
The following day, mealtime arrived and another can of tuna was opened.
Seymour could contain himself no longer. Meekly, he said: "God, I am
grateful to be in heaven with you as a reward for the pious, obedient life
led. But here in heaven all I get to eat is tuna and a piece of rye bread
and in the Other Place they eat like emperors and kings! Forgive me, O
but I just don't understand ... "
God sighed: "Let's be honest, Seymour -- for just two people does it
pay to cook?"
