maestro wit

Richard Thompson, one of my favorite musicians, had this to say, tuning his guitar between songs, during an awe-inspiring performance I attended last week-
"What is the difference between Heaven and Hell? Well, in Heaven, the English greet you, the French cook, the Italians are the entertainers, and the Germans organize everything. In Hell... The French greet you, the English cook, Italians organize everything, and the Germans entertain. "
