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 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 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.
> 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
> On the forth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, marry and
>enjoy your life. I'll give you twenty years." Man said, "What? Only twenty
>years! 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, 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.
