    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
    >again.
    > 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.

    Heard something similar from comedian George Carlin....something about hair, brains and monkeys.
