And God Created Man......


Recommended Posts

God created the mule, and told him, 'You will be a mule, working

constantly from dusk to dawn, carrying heavy loads on your back. You

will eat grass and lack intelligence. You will live for 40 years.'


The mule answered, 'To live like this for 40 years is too much. Please,

give me no more than 20.' And it was so.


Then God created the dog, and told him, 'You will hold vigilance over

the dwellings of Man, to whom you will be his greatest companion. You

will eat his table scraps and live for 25 years.'


And the dog responded, 'Lord, to live 25 years as a dog like that is too

much. Please, no more than 10 years.' And it was so.


God then created the monkey, and told him, 'You are monkey. You shall

swing from tree to tree, acting like an idiot. You will be funny, and

you shall live for 20 years.'


And the monkey responded, 'Lord, to live 20 years as the clown of the

world is too much. Please, Lord, give me no than 10 years.' And it was so.


Finally, God created Man and told him, 'You are Man, the only rational

being that walks the earth. You will use your intelligence to have

mastery over the creatures of the world. You will dominate the earth and

live for 20 years.'


And the man responded, 'Lord, to be Man for only 20 years is too little.

Please, Lord, give me the 20 years the mule refused, the the 15 years

the dog refused, and the 10 years the monkey rejected.' And it was so.


And so God made Man to live 20 years as a man, then marry and live 20

years like a mule working and carrying heavy loads on his back.


Then, he is to have children and live 15 years as a dog, guarding his

house and eating the leftovers after they empty the pantry.


Then, in his old age, to live 10 years as a monkey, acting like an idiot

to amuse his grandchildren.



And it is so.
