I SAY – WHAT???? 

The elderly husband and wife, both a little hard of hearing,
were watching golf on TV.  

The husband turned to his wife of some 50 years and said,
“In my next life, I’m going to be rich and play all those
beautiful golf courses with their great bars and dining and
dancing areas.”  

The wife quickly responded, “How will you be able to manage
all that with your bad legs? You can barely walk!”  

“I said, “.in my next life…,'” the husband replied.  

“Oh,” she said. “I thought you said, ‘..with my next wife!'”



The personnel office received an email requesting a listing
of the department staff broken down by age and sex. The
personnel office sent this reply…  

“Attached is a list of our staff.  We currently have no one
broken down by age or sex. However, we have a few alcoholics.”



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 for our 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.
