Heaven Versus Hell!

The definitions of words can vary greatly depending upon the dictionary one consults.  For example, according to a popular online dictionary (www.dictionary.com), heaven is defined as: “the abode of God, the angels, and the spirits of the righteous after death; the place or state of existence of the blessed after the mortal life.”  Hell is defined as: “the place or state of punishment of the wicked after death; the abode of evil and condemned spirits; Gehenna or Tartarus.”

Well, according to The Cynic’s Dictionary (by Aubrey Dillon- Malone), these words have drastically different (and certainly more amusing) definitions.

Heaven
“An English policeman, a French cook, a German engineer, an Italian lover — and everything organized by the Swiss.”  (John Elliott)

Hell
“An English cook, a French engineer, a German policeman, a Swiss lover — and everything organized by the Italians.”   (John Elliott)
