  1. The Meaning of Life


    On the first 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.

    On the second day God created the monkey. God said,
    " entertain people, do monkey tricks, make them
    laugh. I'll give you a life span of twenty years."
    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

    On the third day God created the cow. God said, "
    You will 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 sixty years." 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 forty." and
    God agreed again.

    On the fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat,
    sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. I'll give
    you 20 years," Man said, "What? Only twenty years!
    Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty
    the cow gave back, and then the ten the monkey gave
    back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes
    eighty, okay?

    "Okay" said God, "you've got a deal." So that's 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 porch and bark
    at everyone.

    Life has now been explained to you.
