It's hell. One presumes that the souls are of dead people.

Of course, as they are magical supernatural maggots I don't think that the Chinese really worried too much about their real eating habits.

Indeed, I mean they eat dogs, whales, and harmless children...
Also they have an extra thumb behind their left ears :)

Maggots do eat living flesh as anybody who has seen a "mawked" sheep will tell you. Very unpleasant it is too.

I dont know what one of those is, but my guess is theyre eating the dead material on/in the living sheep. Though Im wondering how many other topics you will be able to bring it up in :)

Absolutely. They prefer dead flesh but some species will carry on eating live flesh if the dead stuff runs out....

This is not something that is commonly mentioned when medical maggots are emplyed.

Mawked sheep just means a sheep infested with maggots. The flies (usually blowflies or bluebottles) lay eggs on wounds or the dirty, scabby, bit of skin under the fleece, and the maggots start by eating the dead stuff. Once that's run out, though, they will carry on into the live tissue.

Well I wouldnt worry about the maggots eating more than the shit out of my leg, id be bothered more by the doctor leaving me while the maggots feast on what was once one of my limbs.
Might wanna check its not bleeding everywhere once in a while -_-

Also they say "these are special laboratory maggots" ...that have a taste for human flesh :)

I never caught that episode of shaun the sheep :(

Oh they do, if you get a cut in the Amazon or a large wound in Africa, cover it up.

I'm not sure where my Amazon even is, but I'll be careful not to get a cut in it.

All those chambers of hell reminded me of this joke

A man died and went to straight down to hell. The devil greeted him and gave him a guided tour of the place. He told the man that there were three rooms he could chose from in which to spend eternity. The first room was full of flames so hot the man couldn't even breathe. He told the devil that there was no way he was choosing that room. So they moved on.

The next room they came to was full of people who were being beaten and tortured. It looked so painful the man could not watch. He told the devil he definitely didn't want that room, and they moved on.

The last room they came to was full of people who were just sitting around drinking coffee and relaxing. The only thing was that they were standing around in about two feet of poop. The man looked for a while and then told the devil this room would be all right.

The devil gestured for him to sit down and the man took a seat. He did, sipped his coffee and felt really pleased with his choice. After a few minutes, a voice came over the loudspeaker and said, "Break time is over! Back on your heads!"

Is it all aspects of Christianity that have Satan as the chief prisoner in hell rather than the ruler?

(I am an atheist so this sort of thing is foreign to me!)

Some Christians do seem to believe that Satan is some kind of King of Hell, but there's no authority in the Bible for this.

Hell was created as a place for Satan to be sent (Matthew 25:41), but neither is there any scriptural evidence that he's got there yet.

I hate it when I misread something out of the corner of my eye; I read it as 'Cooks who oppress the innocent.'
