Curry, Women and Song

"Right gentlemen," said the cabbie brightly. "Where am I taking you?"

"To where the three remedies for the darkness of the soul may be found," said Spider.

"Maybe we could get a curry." suggested Fat Charlie.

"There are three things, and three things only, that can lift the pain of mortality and ease the ravages of life," said Spider. "These things are wine, women and song."

"Curry's nice too," pointed out Fat Charlie, but nobody was listening to him.
