Heaven and Hell

There once lived two brothers. One was very good and tried to always
live right and be helpful. His brother on the other hand was bad and
did all the things that men should not do in life and didn't care
who he hurt.

The bad brother died. He was still missed by his brother
since he loved him despite his ways. Finally, years later, the good
brother died and went to Heaven. Everything was beautiful and
wonderful there, and he was very happy.

One day he asked God where his brother was, as he hadn't seen him
there. God said that he was sorry but his brother lived a terrible
life and went to Hell instead. The good brother then asked God if
there was any way for him to see his brother. So God gave him the
power of vision to see into Hell and there was his brother. He was
sitting on a bench with a keg of beer under one arm and a gorgeous
blonde on the other.

Confused, the good brother said to God, "I am so happy that you let
me into Heaven with you. It is so beautiful here and I love it. But
I don't understand,if my brother was bad enough to go to Hell, why
does he have a keg of beer and a gorgeous blonde? It hardly seems
like a punishment".

God said to him, "Things are not always as they seem, my son. The keg
has a hole in it - the blonde doesn't."
