Reminds me of the monk who took a vow of silence, only allowing him to say 2 words every 10 years. After 10 years he told the head monk, "Food Cold". Ten years later he said, "Bed Hard". 10 years later he said "I Quit". "Well, it's no surprise", the head monk responded, "you've been complaining since the day you got here."

Edit: Thanks for all the likes. When I'm at the gates of judgment they'll say I'm destined for Hell but I can say: "But wait. I got over 10k likes on a YouTube comment." and then I'll get my free ticket to Heaven!
