    I've probably shared this before but thought someone new might enjoy it....

    The Explanation 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 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 third 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
    Let me have twenty and I'll give back the other forty."
    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
    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 monkey gave back and the ten the
    dog 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 to you .
