Default life explained....

On the first day, 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 said: "That's a long time to be barking. How about only 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. For this, I'll 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 ten like the dog did?" And God agreed.

On the third day, God created the cow and said: "You must go into
the field with the farmer all day long and 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 God agreed again.

On the fourth day, God created man and said: "Eat, sleep,play, marry
and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years." But man 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 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.

Well, I'm about half way through the slave section, I think I should at least be able to start practicing my tricks. Any suggestions :P Oh, I forgot, no kids, no wife. What am I going to do at the next stage if I don't have any grandchildren?

I think I see another "Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy" fan!

Good one Jaxon!

I saw the early BBC movie a while back and that got me hooked. The newer movie has its moments but the book is just awesome! HI-larious!

So long and thanks for all the fish!
