On the first day, God created the dog and said, "Sit all day by the door of your house and bark atanyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give youalife spanof twenty years."The dog said, "That's a long time to be barking. How aboutonly 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. Forthis, I'll give you a twenty-year life span." Themonkey said, "Monkey tricks for twenty years? That's apretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten likethe dog did?"And God agreed...... Onthe third day, God created the cow and said, "You must gointo the field with the farmer all day long and suffer underthe sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer'sfamily. For this, I will give you a life span of sixtyyears."The cow said, "That's kind of a tough life you want me tolive for sixty years. How about twenty and I'll give back theother forty?"And God agreed again...... On the fourth day, God created humans and said, "Eat,sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give youtwenty years."But the human said, "Only twenty years? Could you possiblygive me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten themonkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back; that makeseighty, okay?""Okay," said God. "You asked for it."So that is why for our first twenty years, we eat, sleep, playand enjoy ourselves. For the next forty years, we slave in thesun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkeytricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last tenyears, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you.
