Pooh and PIglet in Heaven

Cover of Planet of the Blind....man and dog....

In heaven Piglet and Pooh were still blind.
“I guess that afterlife recovery story was just nonsense,” said Pooh.
“Grope!” said Piglet.
Pooh stumbled into an angel. It was different than he’d supposed: stingray flat and without wings. He knew it was an angel without wings because it said so.
“Do not be afraid!” it said. “I am a two dimensional angel without wings.”
“Wow!” said Piglet.
“What happened to you?” asked Pooh.
“This ain’t Anglican afterlife,” said the Angel. “This is cartoon character Valhalla.”
“Wow!” said Piglet.
“Why are we still blind?” asked Pooh.
“The only one here who can see is Odin,” said the Angel, “and he’s got one eye so he has no depth perception.”
“Wow!” said Piglet.
“What happens now?” asked Pooh.
“We’re going to the ribbon factory,” the angel said, then added, “the blind do well there.”
