Riddle Me This, Riddle Me That

There was once this man who requested to see both heaven and hell before dying. So when he went to hell, he saw people sitting around a circle table with the food in the center trying to feed themselves with ten foot long chopsticks. They were all starving because of it.



Then when he went to heaven, all of the people were also sitting around a circle table with the food in the center with ten foot long chopsticks. But they were being well fed.



Why do you think the people in hell were starving while the people from heaven were well fed?

Wow. That's really deep.

I think my husband needs to understand this concept.

Good moral

There is a moral implicit in that story. LOVE it!:)

Kind of like life, either help yourself and feel empty or help others and feel a sense of accomplishment in the fact you did something good for your fellow human being.

Excellent ....

Profound and not where I thought it was going. No offense but I genuinely thought it was going to be an Asian joke.

I feel like a bad person that I didn't think of that hahhaha. Good one

ahhh! why would you do that to me! it hurts to think!

Nice! A riddle with a moral at the end.

i heard something similar before, but had never heard it in riddle form. I like this version!
