LIFE EXPLAINED

On the first day God created the cow.

God said, "You must go to field with the farmer all day long and suffer under the sun, have calves and
give milk to support the farmer. I will give you a life span of sixty years."

The cow said, "That's a kind of a tough life you want me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty years
and I'll give back the other forty."

And God agreed.

On the second day, God created the dog.

God said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. I will
give you a life span of twenty years."

The dog said, "That's too long to be barking. Give me ten years and I'll give back the other ten."

So God agreed (sigh).

On the third day God created the monkey. God said, "Entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them
laugh. I'll give you a twenty year life span."

Monkey said, "How boring, monkey tricks for twenty years? I don't think so. Dog gave you back ten, so
that's what I'll do too, okay?"

And God agreed again.

On the fourth day God created man.

God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have fun and, enjoy life. Do nothing, just enjoy, enjoy. I'll give you twenty
years."

Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No way man. Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty cow
gave back, and the ten dog gave back and the ten monkey gave back. That makes eighty, okay?"

"Okay," said God. "You've got a deal."


So that is why for the first twenty years we eat, sleep, play, enjoy life, and have fun; 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
our grandchildren; and for the last ten years we sit in front of the house and bark at everybody.


Life has now been explained
