What is the meaning of life? For thousands and thousands of years, there has been an untold number of scientists and people who have attempted to explain the true meaning of life. Who can truly explain the reasons why human being act the way that they do? What makes them tick?
Well, I have great news for you…I discovered the real explanation of life and would like to share it with you…
A long time ago, God created the dog and said, “Sit all day by the door of your house and bark at anyone who comes in or walks past. For this, I will give you a life span of twenty years.”
The dog replied, “That’s a long time to be barking. How about you only give me ten years and I’ll give back the other ten?”
So God agreed.
Then God made the monkey and said, “Entertain people, do tricks, and make them laugh. For this, I will give you a twenty-year life span.”
The monkey said, “Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back the ten years like the dog did?”
And God agreed.
Then God created the cow and said, “You must go into the field with the farmer all day long, suffer under the sun, have calves and give milk to support the farmer’s family. For this, 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. How about twenty and I’ll give back the other forty?”
And again, God agreed.
Soon thereafter, God created the humans and said, “Eat, sleep, play, marry, and enjoy your life. For this, I’ll give you twenty years.”
But the human said, “Only twenty years? Could you possibly give me my twenty, the forty the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back, that makes eighty, okay?”
“Okay,” said God, “You asked for it.”
So, that is why for our 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 barking at everyone.
