LIFE EXPLAINED (JOKE)
On the first day God created the cow. God said, “You
must go to the 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
The cow said, “That’s kind of a tough life you want
me to live for sixty years. Let me have twenty 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 you 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.”
The 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 forth day God created man. God said, “Eat,
sleep, play, enjoy. 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 the cow
gave back, and the ten the dog gave back and the ten
the monkey gave back, that makes eighty, okay?”
“Okay,” said God. “You’ve got a deal.”
So that is why the first twenty years we eat, sleep,
play, enjoy, and do nothing; 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.
..and so (if my arithmetic – big word, eh – is correct – highly unlikely), I’ll just spend the next ten years “barking crazy, monkeying around, and horsing about”
Life has now been explained. Have a good one!
