To conceive of the bliss that is heaven, consider it to be a place where:
o The cooks are French
o The engineers are German
o The policemen are English
Hell, on the other hand, may accurately be depicted as a place where:
o The cooks are English
o The engineers are French
o The policemen are German
(N.B. All the above are white Europeans, of course, so there is no question of insult).
