Life explained

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

On the fourth day, God created humans and said: 'Eat,
sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll
give you twenty years.' But the human 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 for our 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

Life has now been explained to you.

There is no need to thank me for this valuable information.
I'm doing it as a public service.
