    A good rabbi asked God for a special favour: he wanted to visit both heaven and hell before he died. God granted him the favour, and so he was brought to a room in the after-world. In that room, a group of unhappy, emaciated people sat around a pot of food hanging over a fire. They were trying to feed themselves, but their efforts were in vain because their wooden spoons were too long for them to put the food in their mouths.  This he was told was hell.  Then he was taken to an identical room with a similar group of people sitting around another pot of food with the same long wooden spoons, but here there was merriment and joy. The only difference was that here they fed each other. This he was told, was heaven.
