    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 the 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 has now been explained to you.
