Charles Spurgeon's Gout

Renowned preacher Charles Spurgeon, who had a very serious case of gout, was once approached by a man who claimed that his rheumatism was more painful than Spurgeon's gout. Now, you simply didn't say things like that to Spurgeon and get away with it! Spurgeon replied: "I'll tell you the difference between rheumatism and gout: Put your finger into a vise and turn it until you can't stand the pain; that's rheumatism. Now, give it three more turns; that's gout!
