One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out
"Lord, I have a problem."
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, you've created me and provided
this beautiful spot, these wonderful animals, and that comedic
snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the voice
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death
"Well, perhaps I have a solution. I shall
create a man for you."
"What's a man, Lord?"
"Man will be a flawed creature, with
aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize.
All in all, he'll give you a hard time. But he'll be bigger,
faster, and stronger than you. And while he'll need your advice
to think properly, he'll be good at fighting, kicking a ball
around, hunting fleet-footed ruminants, and not altogether bad
in the sack."
"Sounds good to me," says Eve. "But
isn't there a catch, Lord?"
"Yeah, well, there is one."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that
I made him first."
