Life

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 did?”

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.
