                          Father Murphy walked into a pub and said to the first man he met, "Do you
                          want to go to heaven?"
                          The man said, "I do Father."
                          The priest said,"Leave this pub right now!"
                          He then approached a second man. "Do you want to got to heaven?"
                          "Certainly, Father," was the man's reply.
                          "Then leave this den of Satan!" said the priest.
                          Father Murphy then walked up to O'Toole and asked, "Do you want to go to
                          heaven?"
                          O'Toole replied: "No, I don't Father."
                          The priest looked him right in the eye and said, "You mean to tell me that when
                          you die you don't want to go to heaven?"

                          It was the day of the big sale. Rumors of the sale and an advertisement in the

                          A small man pushed his way to the front of the line, only to be pushed back
                          amid loud and colorful curses. On the man's second attempt, he was punched
                          square in the jaw and knocked around a bit, then thrown to the end of the line
                          again. As he got up the second time, he said to the person at the end of the
                          line:
                          "That does it! If they hit me one more time, I don't open the store!"

                          During his visit to the United States, the Pope met with President Clinton. Instead of just an
                          hour as scheduled, the meeting went on for two days. Finally, a weary President Clinton
                          emerged to face the waiting news media.
                          The President was smiling and announced the summit was a resounding success. He said he and
                          the Pope agreed on 80% of the matters they discussed. Then Mr. Clinton declared he was
                          going home to the White House to be with his family.
                          A few minutes later the Pope came out to make his statement. He looked tired, and
                          discouraged, and was practically in tears. Sadly he announced his meeting with the President
                          was a failure.
                          Incredulous, one reporter asked, "But your Holiness, President Clinton just announced the
                          summit was a great success and the two of you agreed on 80% of the items discussed."
                          Exasperated, the Pope answered, "Yes, but we were talking about the Ten Commandments."
 
 
 

                  Saddam Hussein and Bill Clinton meet up in Baghdad for the
                  first round of talks in a new peace process. When Bill sits down,
                  he notices 3 buttons on the side of Saddam's chair. They begin
                  talking. After about 5 minutes, Saddam presses the first
                  button. A boxing glove springs out of a box on the desk and
                  punches Clinton in the face. Confused, Clinton carries on talking
                  as Saddam laughs.
                  A few minutes later the second button is pressed. This time a
                  big boot comes out and kicks Clinton in the shin. Again Saddam
                  laughs, and again Clinton carries on talking, not wanting to put
                  off the bigger issue of peace between the 2 countries.
                  But when the third button is pressed and another boot comes
                  out and kicks Clinton in the face.
                  "I'm going back home!" he tells the Iraqi. "We'll finish these
                  talks in two weeks!"
                  A fortnight passes and Saddam flies to the United States for
                  talks. As the 2 men sit down, Hussein notices 3 buttons on
                  Clinton's chair and prepares himself for the Yank's revenge.
                  They begin talking and Bill presses the first button. Saddam
                  ducks, butnothing happens. Clinton snickers. A few seconds later
                  he presses the second button. Saddam jumps up, but again
                  nothing happens. Clinton roars with laughter. When the third
                  button is pressed, Saddam jumps up again, and again nothing
                  happens. Clinton falls on the floor in a fit of hysterics. "Forget
                  this," says Saddam. "I'm going back to Baghdad!" Clinton then
                  says through tears of laughter, "What Baghdad?"
 
 
 
 
 

                          Two deputies in the Sheriff's Office, one who had been in town for ten years
                          and the other who had just transferred, answered an emergency call. When
                          they walked into the house, they found the nude bodies of a man and a woman
                          in the bedroom. They had been shot to death. When they went to the living
                          room, they found the body of a man with a gun at his side.
                          "No doubt about it," the new deputy said, "This was a double murder and
                          suicide. This guy came home and found his wife in bed with somebody else
                          and shot them both. Then he shot himself."
                          "You're right," the experienced deputy replied. "But I'll bet you when the
                          sheriff gets here he's going to say, 'it could have been worse'."
                          "No way. You're on."
                          The old sheriff arrived at the scene. "No doubt about it," the sheriff said,
                          shaking hi head. "It was a double murder and suicide." After hesitating for a
                          moment, the old sheriff looked his deputies in the eyes.
                          "But, you know," he said, "it could have been worse."
                          The deput who had lost the bet jumped up and shouted, "Sheriff, how could
                          it have been worse? There are three people in this house, and all three of
                          them are dead. It couldn't have been worse."
                          "Yes, it could," the sheriff retorted. "You see that guy there on the floor? If
                          he had come home yesterday, that would be me!"

A man enters a barbershop for a shave. While the barber is
foaming him up, he mentions the problems he has getting a
close shave around the cheeks. "

I have just the thing," says the barber, taking a small
wooden ball from a nearby drawer. "Just place this between
your cheek and gum."

The client places the ball in his mouth and the barber
proceeds with the closest shave the man has ever
experienced. After a few strokes the client asks in garbled
speech, "And what if I swallow it?"

"No problem," says the barber. "Just bring it back
tomorrow like everyone else does."

When Bill Gates died, he went up to Heaven, where Saint Peter showed
him to his house; a beautiful 20 room house, with grounds and a
tennis court. Bill Gates was pleased, and spent many months enjoying
the amenities of Heaven.
One day, he was enjoying one of Heaven's many fine parks, when he ran
into a man dressed in a fine tailored suit.
"That is a nice suit, my friend," said Gates. "Where did you get it?"
"Actually," the man replied, "I was given a hundred of these when I
got here. I've been treated really well. I got a mansion on a hill
overlooking a beautiful hill, with a huge five-hundred acre estate, a
golf course, and three Rolls Royces."
"Were you a Pope, or a doctor healing the sick?" asked Gates.
"No," said his new friend, "Actually, I was the captain of the
Titanic."
Hearing this made Gates so angry that he immediately stalked off to
find St. Peter.
Cornering Peter, he told him about the man he had just met, saying,
"How could you give me a paltry new house, while you're showering new
cars, a mansion, and fine suits on the Captain of the Titanic?  I
invented the Windows operating system! Why does he deserve
better??!!!!"
"Yes, but we use Windows," replied Peter, "and the Titanic only
crashed once."
 
 

A brunette, redhead, and a blonde went to a fitness spa for some fun
and relaxation. After a stimulating healthy lunch, all three decided
to visit the ladies room and found a strange-looking woman sitting at
the entrance who said:
"Welcome to the ladies room. Be sure to check out our newest
feature: a mirror which, if you look into it and say something
truthful, you will be awarded with a wish.  But, be warned, for if
you say something false, you will be sucked into the mirror to live
in a void of nothingness for all eternity!"
The three women quickly entered and upon finding the mirror, the
brunette said, "I think I'm the most beautiful of us three" and in an
instant she was surrounded by a pile of money.
The redhead stepped up and said "I think I'm the most talented of us
three" and she suddenly found the keys to a brand new Lexus in her
hands.
Excited over the possibility of having a wish come true, the blonde
looked into the mirror and said, "I think..." and was promptly sucked
into the mirror.
 
 

A fire started on some grassland near a farm in Indiana. The fire
department from the nearby town was called to put the fire out. The
fire proved to be more than the small town fire department could
handle, so someone suggested that a rural volunteer fire department
be called.  Though there was doubt that they would be of any
assistance, the call was made.
The volunteer fire department arrived in a dilapidated old fire
truck. They drove straight towards the fire and stopped in the middle
of the flames. The volunteer firemen jumped off the truck and
frantically started spraying water in all directions. Soon they had
snuffed out the center of the fire, breaking the blaze into two
easily controllable parts.
The farmer was so impressed with the volunteer fire department's work
and so grateful that his farm had been spared, that he presented the
volunteer fire department with a check for $1000. A local news
reporter asked the volunteer fire captain what the department planned
to do with the funds.
"That should be obvious," he responded, "the first thing we're gonna
do is get the brakes fixed on that stupid fire truck."
 
 
 

                          Bill's barn burned down, and his wife Polly called the
                          insurance company.
                          Polly told the insurance company, "We had that barn
                          insured for fifty thousand, and I want my money."
                          The agent replied, "Hold on just a minute, Polly. Insurance
                          doesn't work quite like that. We will ascertain the value of
                          what was insured and provide you with a new barn of
                          comparable worth."
                          There was a long pause before Polly replied, "Then I'd like
                          to cancel the policy on my husband."
 
 

While proudly showing off his new apartment to friends, a college
student led the way into the den.
"What is the big brass gong and hammer for?" one of his friends asked.
"That is the talking clock," the man replied.
"How's it work?" the friend asked.
"Watch," the man said and proceeded to give the gong an ear-
shattering pound with the hammer.
Suddenly, someone screamed from the other side of the wall, "Knock it
off, you idiot! It's two o'clock in the morning!"
 
 

A guy goes into a bar. He's sitting on the stool,
enjoying his drink when he hears, "You look great!"
He looks around - there's nobody near him. He hears
the voice again, "No really, you look terrific."
 The guy looks around again. Nobody. He hears,
 "Is that a new shirt or something? Because you
are absolutely glowing!" He then realizes that
the voice is coming from a dish of nuts on the bar.
"Hey," the guy calls to the bartender, "What's with the
nuts?"
"Oh," the bartender answers, "They're complimentary."
 
 
 
 

                   A man walked into a bar and ordered a glass of white wine.
                   He took a sip of the wine, then tossed the
                   remainder in the bartender's face.
                   Before the bartender could recover from the surprise, the
                   man began weeping. "I'm really sorry. I keep doing that to
                   bartenders. I can't tell you how embarrassing it is to have a
                   compulsion like this."
                   Far from being angry, the bartender was sympathetic.
                   Before long, he was suggesting that the man see a
                   psychoanalyst about his problem.
                   "I happen to have the name of a psychoanalyst,"
                   the bartender said. "My brother and my wife have
                   both been treated by him, and they say he's as good
                   as they come." The man wrote down the name of
                   the doctor, thanked the bartender, and left. The bartender
                   smiled, knowing he'd done a good deed
                   for a fellow human being.
                   Six months later, the man was back. "Did you do
                   what I suggested?" the bartender asked, serving the glass of
                   white wine.
                   "I certainly did," the man said. "I've been seeing the
                   psychoanalyst twice a week." He took a sip of the wine. Then
                   he threw the remainder into the bartender's face.
                   The flustered bartender wiped his face with a towel.
                   "The doctor doesn't seem to be doing you any good,"
                   he spluttered.
                   "On the contrary," the man said," he's done me a world of
                   good."
                   "But you just threw the wine in my face again!" the
                   bartender exclaimed.
                   "Yes" the man said. "But it doesn't embarrass me anymore!"
 
 
 
 
 

                          Sometime after Sidney died, his widow, Tillie, was finally able to speak about
                          what a thoughtful and wonderful man her late husband had been.
                          "Sidney thought of everything," she told them. "Just before he died, Sidney
                          called me to his bedside. He handed me three envelopes. 'Tillie,' he told me, 'I
                          have put all my last wishes in these three envelopes. After I am dead, please
                          open them and do exactly as I have instructed. Then, I can rest in peace'."
                          "What was in the envelopes?" her friends asked.
                          "The first envelope contained $5,000 with a note, 'Please use this money to
                          buy a nice casket.' So I bought a beautiful mahogany casket with such a
                          comfortable lining that I know Sidney is resting very comfortably."
                          "The second envelope contained $10,000 with a note, 'Please use this for a
                          nice funeral.' I arranged Sidney a very dignified funeral and bought all his
                          favorite foods for everyone attending."
                          "And the third envelope?" asked her friends.
                          "The third envelope contained $25,000 with a note, 'Please use this to buy a
                          nice stone'."
                          Holding her hand in the air, Tillie said, "So, do you like my stone?" showing
                          off her ten carat diamond ring.

they are the best at apprehending criminals. The President

forest. They question all plant and mineral witnesses. After

Then the FBI goes in. After two weeks with no leads they
burn the forest, filling everything in it, including the
rabbit, and they make no apologies. "The rabbit had it coming!"

Three mothers were sitting around comparing notes on
their exemplary offspring. "There never was a daughter
more devoted than my Alice," said Mrs. Davis with a sniff.
"Every summer she takes me to the Catskills for a week,
and every winter we spend a week at Delray Beach."
"That's nothing compared to what my Anna does for me,"
declared Mrs. Jones proudly. "Every winter she treats me
to two weeks in Miami, and in the summer two weeks in the
Hamptons, in my own private guest house."
Mrs. Smith sat back with a proud smile. "Nobody loves her
mother like my Jackie does.  Nobody."
"So what does she do?" asked the two women, turning to her.
"Three times a week she gets into a cab, goes to the best
psychiatrist in the city, and pays him a hundred and fifty
dollars an hour - just to talk about me!"
 
 

     Two men met at a bar and struck up a conversation. After a while one of them said, "You
think you have family problems? Listen to my situation: A few years ago I met a young widow with a
grown-up daughter and we got married. Lately, my father married my stepdaughter. That made my
stepdaughter my stepmother and my father became my stepson. Also my wife became mother-in-law
of her father-in-law. Then the daughter of my wife, my stepmother had a son. This boy was my half
brother because he was my father's son, but he was also the son of my wife's daughter which made
him my wife's grandson. That made me grandfather of my half-brother. This was nothing until my wife
and I had a son.
     Now the sister of my son, my mother-in-law is also the grandmother. This makes my father the
brother-in-law of my child, whose stepsister is my father's wife. I am my stepmother's brother-in-law,
my wife is her own child's aunt, my son is my father's nephew and I am my own grandfather and you
think you have family problems."

         you three wishes but, what ever you wish for your neighbour
         gets double."
         The guy didn't like that part but he made a wish anyway.
         For his first wish, he said,
         "Genie, I want a house in Hawaii." POOF!!! He got one
         house, his neighbour got two. This didn't make him happy but,
         he made his second wish.
         "Genie,I want 2 billion dollars." POOF! He got two
         billion, his neighbour four billion. By now, this guy isn't very
         happy. The genie says,"You have one wish left. I have to
         remind you, what ever you wish for your neighbour gets
         double." The guy says," Yeah,yeah.I know." So the guy
         thinks real hard and says "
         I got it! Genie, beat me half to death!!"

         especially math. So, his father, after much deliberation,
         decided to send him to a catholic school because he
         heard that they were very good. On the little boys very
         first report card he got all A's. His dad was mystified
         and he asked his son how he was doing so well. His son

         sporty pope-mobile for this trip. He begged the chauffer
         to let him drive. Finnally the chauffer gave in and let the
         pope drive. Of course, the pope went crazy and was
         going too fast. Finally he ran a stop light and was pulled
         over by a policeman. The cop called his station to ask
         them what to do because he just pulled over somebody
         very, very important. His sargent asked who , our
         mayor, a movie star, or what?? The cop replied Well

         A young boy had just gotten his driving permit. He
         asked his father, who was a minister if they could
         discuss the use of the car. His father took him to his
         study and said to him, "I'll make a deal with you. You
         bring your grades up, study your bible a little and get
         your hair cut and we'll talk about it."
         After about a month the boy came back and again
         asked his father if they could discuss use of the car.
         They again went to the father's study where his father
         said, "Son, I've been real proud of you. You have
         brought your grades up, you've studied your bible
         diligently, but you didn't get your hair cut!"
         The young man waited and minute and replied, "You
         know Dad, I've been thinking about that. You know,
         Samson had long hair, Moses had long hair, why even
         Jesus had long hair...."
         To which his father replied...."Yes, and they WALKED
         every where they went!"

  and sits in the back of the room, drinking a sip out of each on in turn.
  When he finished them, he comes back into to the bar and orders three more.

  The bartender asks him, "You know, a pint goes flat after I draw it; it
  would taste better if you bought one at a time."
  The Irishman replies, "Well, you see, I have two brothers. One is in
  American, the other in Australia, and I'm here in Dublin. When we all
  left home, we promised that we'd drink this way to remember the days we
  all drank together."

  The bartender admits that this is a nice custom, and leaves it there.
  The Irishman becomes a regular in the bar and always drinks the same
  way: he orders three pints and drinks them in turn.

  One day, he comes in and orders two pints.
  All the other regulars in the bar notice and fall silent.
  When he comes back to the bar for the second round, the bartender says,
  "I don't want to intrude on your grief, but I wanted to offer my
  condolences on your great loss."
  The Irishman looks confused for a moment, then a lights dawns in his eye
  and he laughs.
  "Oh, no," he says, "Everyone is fine. I've just quit drinking!"
 
 

                    The European Union
                    commissioners have announced that agreement
                    has been reached to adopt English as the
                    preferred language for European
                    communications, rather than German, which
                    was the
                    other possibility. As part of the negotiations,
                    Her Majesty's Government conceded that
                    English
                    spelling had some room for improvement and
                    has
                    accepted a five-year phased plan for what will
                    be
                    known as EuroEnglish (Euro for short). In the
                    first year, 's' will be used instead of the soft
                    'c'. Sertainly, sivil servants will resieve this
                    news with joy. Also, the hard 'c' will be
                    replaced with 'k.' Not only will this klear up
                    konfusion, but typewriters kan have one less
                    letter.
                    There will be growing publik enthusiasm in the
                    sekond year, when the troublesome 'ph' will be

                    replaced by 'f'. This will make words like
                    'fotograf' 20 per sent shorter.
                    In the third year, publik akseptanse of the new
                    spelling kan be expekted to reach the stage
                    where
                    more komplikated changes are possible.
                    Governments
                    will enkourage the removal of double letters,
                    which have always ben a deterent to akurate
                    speling. Also, al wil agre that the horible mes
                    of silent 'e's in the languag is disgrasful, and
                    they would go.
                    By the fourth year, peopl wil be reseptiv to
                    steps
                    such as replasing 'th' by 'z' and 'W' by 'V'.
                    During ze fifz year, ze unesesary 'o' kan be

This story is about a rather strange reply for a
                    campground reservation. It is said to be true,
                    but you be the judge.

                    A woman who was rather old-fashioned,
                    delicate,
                    and elegant - especially in her language - was
                    planning a week's vacation in Florida so she
                    wrote
                    to a particular campground and asked for a
                    reservation.

                    She wanted to make sure the campground was
                    fully
                    equipped, but didn't quite know how to ask
                    about
                    the toilet facilities. She just couldn't bring
                    herself to write the word 'TOILET' in her
                    letter.
                    After much deliberation, she finally came up
                    with
                    the old-fashioned term 'BATHROOM
                    COMMODE.' But
                    when she wrote that down, she still thought she

                    was being too forward. So, she started all over

                    again, rewrote the letter and referred to the
                    bathroom commode merely as the B.C. 'Does
                    the
                    campground have it's own B.C.?' is what she
                    actually wrote.

                    Well, the campground owner wasn't
                    old-fashioned at
                    all and when he got the letter, he just couldn't
                    figure out what the woman was talking about.
                    That
                    B.C. business really stumped him.

                    After worrying about it for a while, he showed
                    the
                    letter to several campers, but they couldn't
                    imagine what the lady meant either. So the
                    campground owner, finally coming to the
                    conclusion
                    that the lady must be asking about the location
                    of
                    the local Baptist Church, sat down and wrote
                    the
                    following reply:

                    'Dear Madam: I regret very much for the delay
                    in
                    answering your letter. I now take the pleasure
                    in
                    informing you that a B.C. is located nine miles
                    north of the campground and is capable of
                    seating
                    250 people at one time. I admit it is quite a
                    distance away if you are in the habit of going
                    regularly, but no doubt you will be pleased to
                    know that a great number of people usually
                    take
                    their lunches along and make a day of it. They
                    usually arrive early and stay late.'

                    'The last time my wife and I went was six years

                    ago and it was so crowded that we had to
                    stand up
                    the whole time we were there. It may interest
                    you
                    to know that right now, there is a supper being
                    planned to raise money to buy more seats.
                    They're
                    going to hold it in the basement of the B.C.'

                    'I would like to say it pains me very much not
                    to
                    be able to go more regularly but it is sure no
                    lack of desire on my part. As we grow older, it

                    seems to be more of an effort, particularly in
                    cold weather.'

                    'If you do decide to come down to our
                    campground,
                    perhaps I could go with you the first time you
                    go,
                    sit with you, and introduce you to all the other
                    folks.'

                    'Remember, this is a friendly community.'
 
 
 
 

A Truck Driver was driving down the highway
                    when
                    he saw a priest at the side of the Road. He
                    stopped to pick up the priest and give him a
                    ride.
                    A ways down the road the Truck Driver saw a
                    lawyer
                    on the side of the road. He turned the truck on
                    a
                    direct course with the lawyer. Then he thought
                    'Oh no, I have a priest in the truck I can't run
                    down this lawyer' and at the last second the
                    Truck
                    Driver swerved to miss the lawyer.
                    But, the Truck Driver heard a thump outside of
                    the
                    truck, he looked in his rear-view mirror but
                    didn't see anything.
                    He turned to the priest and said 'Sorry Father,
                    I
                    just missed that Lawyer at the side of the road'
                    And the priest said 'Don't worry son, I got him
                    with my door'

                    Once a Pope and a lawyer died and they went
                    to
                    heaven. So God came and said, 'Follow me
                    and I
                    will give you your rooms.'
                    So they both followed. First God gave the
                    Pope his
                    room. It was very small with a small bed and a
                    small desk.
                    'Thank you, thank you my lord,' said the Pope.

                    Then God gave the lawyer his room, it was big
                    room
                    with a big bed and a big deck with a pool and
                    pretty woman.
                    'Mr.God, why do you give all this to me and
                    just that small room to the Pope?'
                    'Well, popes, we have them by the dozens, and
                   lawyers, well, your the first one.
 
 

Three explorers, an Englishman, a Frenchman, and an American from New York
City are captured by cannibals.

The cannibal chief comes up to them and says "We're going to kill you, eat you,
and use your skins to make a canoe. But, you do get to choose how you die."

The Englishman pulls out a revolver, yells "God save the queen!" and shoots
himself in the head.

The Frenchman pulls out a bottle of cyanide, shouts "Vive La France!" drinks the
poison, and dies.

The New Yorker pulls out a fork, and begins stabbing himself repeatedly all over
the body.

The cannibal chief is amazed. "Stop! What are you doing to yourself?"

The New Yorker, continuing to stab himself with the fork, looks at the chief and
screams "This is what I think of your canoe!"

"No."
"Got any duck food?"'
 

THE BOSS ASKED FOR A LETTER DESCRIBING BOB SMITH:
Bob Smith, my assistant programmer, can always be found
hard at work in his cubicle. Bob works independently, without
wasting company time talking to colleagues. Bob never
thinks twice about assisting fellow employees, and he always
finishes given assignments on time. Often Bob takes extended
measures to complete his work, sometimes skipping coffee
breaks. Bob is a dedicated individual who has absolutely no
vanity in spite of his high accomplishments and profound
knowledge in his field. I firmly believe that Bob can be
classed as a high-caliber employee, the type which cannot be
dispensed with. Consequently, I duly recommend that Bob be
promoted to executive management, and a proposal will be
executed as soon as possible.

A man is flying in a hot air balloon and realizes he is lost. He reduces height and
spots a man down below. He lowers the balloon further and shouts:
"Excuse me, can you tell me where I am?"
The man below says, "Yes, you're in a hot air balloon, hovering 30 feet above this
field."
"You must work in information technology" says the balloonist.
"I do," replies the man. "How did you know."
"Well," says the balloonist, "everything you have told me is technically correct,
but it's of no use to anyone."
The man below says, "You must be a corporate manager."
"I am," replies the balloonist, "but how did you know?"
"Well", says the man, "You don't know where you are, or where you're going, but
you expect me to be able to help. You're in the same position you were before we
met, but now it's my fault."

A journalist had done a story on gender roles in Kuwait several years before the Gulf War, and she noted then that women customarily walked about 10 feet behind their husbands.
          She returned to Kuwait recently and observed that the men now walked several yards behind their wives.
          She approached one of the women for an explanation. "This is marvelous," said the journalist. "What enabled
          women here to achieve this reversal of roles?
          Replied the Kuwaiti woman: "Land mines"
 
 

          The service was about to start. Everyone was in their pews chatting about their families, jobs, etc. when suddenly
          Satan appeared in the front of the church.
          Panic ensued. In their rush to get out the back doors, people jumped over pews, trampled one another, and flew
          through the doors at record speeds. When the dust settled the only ones in the auditorium are Satan and one older
          gentleman, who did not seem at all concerned that Satan was standing directly in front of him.
          Now this confused Satan a bit, so he walked up to the man and said, "Do you know who I am?"
          To which the older gentleman replied, "Yup. Sure do."
          Satan: "Aren't you afraid of me?"
          Older gentleman: "Nope, sure ain't."
          Satan was quite perturbed at this so he got right in the man's face and asked, "And would you mind telling me why
          not?" The older gentleman replied, "Been married to your sister for 48 years."
 
 
 
 

God created the mule, and told him, "You are mule. You will work
constantly from dusk to dawn, carrying heavy loads on your back. You
will eat grass and lack intelligence. You will live for 50 years."
The mule answered, "To live like this for 50 years is too much. Please,
give me no more than 20."
And it was so.
Then God created the dog, and told him, "You are dog. 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."
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."
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."
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 15 years the
dog refused, and the 10 years the monkey rejected."
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
