I noticed that it has been a while since you guys posted a joke. So, I am going to post one that my dad was told. Here goes. On day 1 GOD made the dog. HE told the dog that he would have a life span of 20 years. The dog must sit on the front porch and bark at every one that passes by all day long every day of his life. The dog said" wow that sounds like a lot of work. Hmm. How about I give you back 10 years" GOD said OK. Dog life span 10 years.
On day 2 GOD made the money. HE said "monkey, you must do tricks and make people laugh your entire life and I will give you a life span of 20 years". The monkey said "that sounds like a lot of work. I will give you 10 years back"GOD said OK. Monkey life span 10 years.

On day 3 GOD made the cow. GOD told the cow that she must work hard everyday under the hot sun with the farmer, she must have a calf every year and provide milk for the farmer, and her life span is to be 60 years. The cow said" oh, that sounds like a lot of work. I will give you back 40 years" GOD said OK. Cow life span 20 years.
On day 4 GOD made man. GOD told man that HE wanted him to do whatever he wanted to do, have fun, and HE would give him a life span of 20 years. Man said " only 20 years that doesn't sound like a enough. May I have the 10 extra years that the dog gave back, the 10 years that the monkey gave back, and the 40 years that the cow gave back" GOD said OK. So now for the first 20 years of man's life he has fun and goes whatever he wants, for the next 40 years he is out working hard under the hot sun providing for his family, the next 10 years he is doing tricks and making all of his grandkids laugh, and finally the last 10 years he is sitting on the front porch barking at everyone that passes by. So now you know.
