…and in the world…
Those who say otherwise — notably those who are ecstatic — remind me of an old joke…
A man and his wife are driving in the countryside, when they stop to get out and take a look at the panorama.
Suddenly, a robber appears before them. Give me your clothes, he demands. Give me your car keys. Taking out a piece of chalk, the man draws a big circle on the road. Get in there, he tells the naked husband. If you as much as put a single foot outside of it, I'll kill you.
The thief takes the naked wife behind a couple of trees and rapes her. Then he takes their money, their clothes, and their car, and drives off.
The weeping wife comes staggering back to where the husband is in his circle. To her surprise, he is laughing. :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)
How can you laugh?! She says between two sobs. That beast raped me, and took everything we got!!
Between two snickers, the husband replies: Because I managed to put my foot out of the circle — three times! — and he never saw me do it!
