When God created the dog, He 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.

Next, 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.

God then 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 tosupport 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.

Finally, 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 the 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
grand-children. And for the last ten years we sit on the front porch
and bark at everyone.

Life has now been explained to you. .

For some reason, when I read the title of this thread I was expecting a story pertaining to that jackhole we have all come to love, Tom Cruise. He seems to have a knack for indulging us in his endless supply of wisdom.
