The Meaning of Life


Recommended Posts

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-five and I'll give back the other thirty-five."

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, have sex, enjoy. Do nothing, just

enjoy life, enjoy. I'll give you twenty-five years." Man said,

"What? Only twenty-five years! No way, man. Tell you what, I'll

take my twenty-five, and the thirty-five 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-five years we eat, sleep, play,

have sex, enjoy life, and do nothing; for the next thirty-five

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.

And there you have it.
