My cheese business went bankrupt after 26 successful years of serving the public. I had to lay off 785 employees. I lost my purpose in life. 

I sat in the middle of my empty cheese processing plant, feeling distraught. 

But then I remembered what Barney said, “If you’re still alive, what do you have to complain about?” 

I opened the exit door to the alleyway and invited in a horde of rats. Then I opened the doors to the cheese fridges and said, “Have at it!” 

The rats ran into the fridges and gorged on cheese. 

One of the rats looked at me with tears in its eyes and said, “This is the greatest day of my life!”
