Careful what you wish for...
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 35 years."
The mule answered, "To live like this for 35 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 30 years."
The dog responded, "Lord, to live 30 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
The man responded, "Lord, to be Man for only 20 years is too little. Please,
Lord; give me the 15 years the mule refused, the 20 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 15 years
like a mule working and carrying heavy loads on his back. Then, he is to
have children and live 20 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.
And it is so...
