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 fourth day God created man. God said, "Eat, sleep, play, have sex. Do nothing, just enjoy life, I'll give you twenty-five years."

Man said, "What? Only twenty-five years! 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.

So...which stage are you in?! :spineyes:

I can see stage 2 from where I'm standing...Wouldn't it be nice to be in stage 2 and have the benefits of stage 1...?? I was listening to the radio on the way to work and they were interviewing a country singer. He was talking about how if you're good at your hobby be careful, it might turn into a job. Keep it fun folks...
