Artist's Statement

By "People Like Us," I mean me, my friends, and probably you, too--people who are basically decent and harmless enough but haven't exactly gone out of their way to feed the hungy or fight any other great evils. We don't deserve to go to Hell because we didn't even have the balls to do anything genuinely evil in life, just frittered away our lives eating potato chips, drinking beer, watching DVDs, farting around. This is the celestial counterpart of the outermost circle of hell, the shabby run-down outskirts of Paradise  Far away, in the distant background, the virtuous flock to the Holy City and sing the praises of the Most High, while we pass the ol' bottle around.

A difficult choice would be whether to spend eternity in the Slums of Heaven or the V.I.P. Lounge in Hell.
