Eternal Happiness vs Ham Sandwich Paradox

What if someone were to ask you, “Which is better, eternal happiness or a ham sandwich?”  Personally, it would depend on how hungry I am.  It would appear to most people that eternal happiness would be the more desirable of the two.  Not so fast.  After all, nothing is better than eternal happiness, and a ham sandwich is certainly better than nothing.  Therefore a ham sandwich is better than eternal happiness.  Again, somewhat silly, but it makes a point.
