Hi Jrp,

It was the point of view of the recently deceased Captain Stormfield
from the literary classic, "Extract from Captain Stormfield’s Visit to
Heaven" as he describes a series of amusingly disconcerting
revelations about the next world. The line he said was, "Sitting on a
cloud strumming a harp all day turns out to be insufferably
boring...". Read the link below for more details regarding this:
