'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 humans and said:
'Eat, sleep, play, marry and enjoy your life. For this, I'll give you twenty years.'
But the human 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.

All the hillbillies sitting around the bar look up, expecting to see some pitiful Yankee from the north.
The bartender says, "You ain't from around here, are ya?"
The guy says, "No, I'm from Canada."
The bartender says, "What do you do in Canada?"
The guy says, "I'm a taxidermist."
The bartender says, "A taxidermist? What in tarnation is a taxidermist? Do you drive a taxi?"
"No, a taxidermist doesn't drive a taxi. I mount animals."
The bartender grins and hollers, "It's okay boys. He's one of us."

a man has just finished reading the book " How to Be the Man of the House". after paying close attention to every detail, especially the lines regarding having a firm stand in what he demands, and not taking no for an answer, the man marches downstairs to his wife and exclaims; " woman, I am the man of the house..

you will wash my back, then leave me to relax and come back downstairs, clean up the kitchen.
when I call for you, you will come back upstairs, go into the bedroom, and you will give me the sex that I want. "

The other day I went downtown to run a few errands. I went into the local
coffee shop for a snack.
I was only there for about 5 minutes, and when I came out, there was
this cop writing out a parking ticket. I said to him, 'Come on, man,
how about giving a retired person a break'?
He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. His insensitivity annoyed me,
so I called him a 'Nazi.' He glared at me and then wrote out another ticket for
having worn tires.
So I proceeded to call him a 'doughnut eating Gestapo.' He finished
the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then
he wrote a third ticket when I called him a moron in blue.
This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I talked back to him the more
tickets he wrote. Personally, I didn't really care. I came downtown on the bus,
and the car that he was putting the tickets on had one of those bumper stickers
that said, "Obama '08".
I try to have a little fun each day now that I'm retired.
The doctor tells me that it's important for my health.

A priest offered a Nun a lift. She got in and crossed her legs, forcing her gown to reveal a leg. The priest nearly had an accident. After controlling the car, he stealthily slid his hand up her leg. The nun said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest removed his hand. But, changing gears, he let his hand slide up her leg again. The nun once again said, 'Father, remember Psalm 129?' The priest apologized 'Sorry sister but the flesh is weak.' Arriving at the convent, the nun sighed heavily and went on her way. On his arrival at the church, the priest rushed to look up Psalm 129.
It said, 'Go forth and seek, further up, you will find glory.
