life explained


Recommended Posts

On the first day, God created the dog and said:

"Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at

anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will

give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said:

"That's a long time to be barking. How about only

ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"

So God agreed.


On the second day, God created the monkey and said:

"Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh.

For this, I'll give you a twenty-year life span."

The monkey said:

"Monkey tricks for twenty years?? That's a pretty

long time to perform.? How about I give you back ten

like the Dog?"

And God agreed.


On the third day, God created the cow and said:

"You must go into the field with the farmer all day

long and suffer under the sun, have calves and give

milk to support the farmer's family. For this, I will

give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said:

"That's kind of a tough life you want me to live

for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back

the other forty?"

And God agreed again.


On the fourth day, God created man and said:

"Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For

this, I'll give you twenty years."

But man said:

"Only twenty years?? Could you possibly give me my

twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the

monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that

makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God, "You asked for it."


So that is why the first twenty years we eat,

sleep, play and enjoy ourselves. For the next forty

years we slave in the sun to support our family. For

the next ten years we do monkey tricks to entertain

the grandchildren. And for the last ten years we sit

on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
