Zen and the Art of BBQ
While relaxing and tending the pit one night at competition, the new Disciple asked the Master; "Is there a hell and a paradise?" The Master said; "That's JUST the kinda stupid question I'd expect from a snot nosed, ignorant BBQ Chef wannabe like you! In fact, I suspect your parents must have committed karmic suicide by getting together to breed a dimwit like you!". Well, at this the Disciple jumped up, turned to the Master with every muscle torqued to the max and drew his fist back ready to strike when the Master said; " Aaahhh! See?! The gates of hell begin to open!" Then the rage drained from the Disciple, he stood there for a moment, then said; "I understand." And clasped his hands and bowed deeply to the Master who said; "And now you glimpse the gates of paradise."
