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 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 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 everyone.

    Life/lifespans have now been explained to you.
