Question: I couldn't understand the joke in the beginning ("In such small portions"). Can someone explain it to me, please.

Chosen answer: Woody says "There's an old joke - um... two elderly women are at a Catskill mountain resort, and one of 'em says, "Boy, the food at this place is really terrible." The other one says, "Yeah, I know; and such small portions." Well, that's essentially how I feel about life - full of loneliness, and misery, and suffering, and unhappiness, and it's all over much too quickly." The 2nd old lady is complaining about the small portions of terrible food, as if large portions of terrible food would be better.
