    As explained to me by Rob Longenecker of Tucker Gunleather.....



    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 and
    I'll give back the other forty." 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. The 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, enjoy. Do nothing, just enjoy.
    I'll give you twenty years." Man said, "What? Only twenty years? No
    way, man. Tell you what, I'll take my twenty, and the forty 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 years we eat, sleep, play, have sex,
    enjoy, and do nothing; 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.
