It’s greater than God and faster than light;
More evil than the devil and colder than absolute zero.
The poor have it; the rich need it;
But none may claim it ’til all is lost.
It fills every hole and the to-do lists of most bored children,
And many a mind paid the penny for its thoughts.
It’s worse than the worst day you can remember,
And better than the best day you’ve ever had.
It’s what you’ve eaten when you’re hungry,
And what you want when you’re full;
It tastes better than your favorite food,
But if you eat it long enough, you will die.
It’s what’s on when you don’t want to watch anything,
And what’s playing when you don’t want to go out.
Benedick loves it as much as Beatrice,
And Lear tells us that it will come of itself.
It fills unused journals, empty store shelves,
And far too many bank accounts.
Many claim it can make them do something
They would otherwise never do.
It lasts as long as the task you never begin,
But is over as quickly as the moment you want never to end.
It can come between ardent lovers, placate implacable hatred,
Turn back time, and stop the tides,
Compare with the incomparable, replace the irreplaceable,
Cure the incurable, and kill the invulnerable.
It can prepare you for the loss of a loved one,
As well as rob you of their memory.
Blessed is he who expects it, for he shall never be disappointed.
And with God, it is impossible.
It is written wrong…
You have made a mistake that a lot of people make, I see it all the time and it drives me nuts.
You have used the word ‘Then’ instead of the word ‘Than’
What Is Greater Than God, More Evil Than The Devil, Rich People Need It, Poor People Have It, And If You Eat It You will Die?
Whooper Jr. Only a sales person would say It is greater than god, a Whooper Jr. is more evil than the devil, The rich need it because they taste good, poor people can afford them, and if you eat too many you could die.
The answer is pride.. ugh.. waaaay too many Bible thumpers on here. “The answer is nothing, what is greater than God?” Damn.. you people sound liked idiots, go harass a different web site, yer wasting all of our time.
@Smash – The answer is Nothing.
Really? You really think the answer is pride? Poor people have pride? If you eat Pride you die? Really? That doesn’t even make sense. the answer is Nothing. Poor people have Nothing, Rich people need Nothing, and if you eat Nothing, you die. You always have to eat something!
