Default Explanation of 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'* a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I'll give you back the other ten?"

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'* 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'* family. For this, I

will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That'* kind of 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 give you twenty years."

But the 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," God said. "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 are slaves in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we make 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.
