இ Years To Live¿

G~d created the mule, and told him, "You will be mule, working constantly from dusk to dawn, carrying heavy loads on your back. You will eat grass and you lack intelligence. You will live for 40 years."

 


The mule answered, "To live like this for 40 years is too much. Please, give me no more than 20." And it was so.



Then G~d created the dog, and told him, "You are dog and will hold vigilance over the dwellings of Man, to whom you will be his greatest companion and man's best friend. You will eat his table scraps and live for 30 years."

 
And the dog responded, "Lord, to live 30 years as a dog is too much. Please, take in mercy 15 years off my life." And it was so.



G~d then created the monkey, and told him, "You are monkey. You shall swing from tree to tree, acting like a clown. You will be funny, and you shall live for 20 Years."

And the monkey responded, "Lord, to live 20 years as the clown of the world is too much. Please, Lord, take off I pray for 10 years." And it was so.



Finally, G~d 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.  The power of thought and judgment shall be yours, and the capacity of disclosing your innermost thoughts by means of speech. You will dominate the earth and your life shall be 25 years." And the man responded, "What is the good of living in pleasure and in might, if all the years of my life are to be 25 is too little. Please, Lord, give me the 20 years the mule refused, the 15 years the dog refused, and the 10 years the monkey rejected." And the Lord granted his wishes.

So G~d made Man to live 25 years as a king and ruler over all creatures for the twenty five years which the Lord had given to him, in joy and in happiness, without care and without trouble until 25 years later..assing & working pretty hard for the money, barely surviving with all the back stabbing, woofing to keep the wealth protected & finally clowning with grand children¿. We hear fantasies from people wishing to be different and to be free of which eagle seems to be the most popular choice. A familiar popular El Condor Pasa says it all with "I rather be a sparrow than a snail..". Even 古巨基 Leo Ko in his song 愛與誠 wants be a cat or a dog than to be a lover. The singer desperately needs "love potion number 9"

"God gave us the gift of life; it is up to us to give ourselves the gift of living well" ~ Voltaire.


BAD JOKE DISCLAIMER: Bananaz recognizes that religious humor can be risky. It is my hope that by laughing at ourselves (and others) we can make this subject more approachable. If you find any of these objectionable, gross or irreverent I truly apologize. As with most jokes, the original authors are unknown - but we thank them.

A new trend has EXPLODED in China’s upper class where people are transforming their pets into miniature versions of animals, fairy’s or just dying them crazy colours but Pandas seem to be a big hit and obviously their favourite. It’s becoming a huge industry and people are spending thousands of dollar$ in professional hair dye, salon cuts, clothing, accessories and whatnot to achieve their desired 'animal' to their liking.

Its ain't easy even to be a dog, think again if you rather be a dog, though they are pretty cute. Received these pixz from daughter Nikki and  the source unknown.

that's an interesting story!

lina said...

First time I know the story that you posted! xD

Aiyoh, kesian those doggies kena become what their owners imagine to be cute.

reanaclaire said...

Heard about this before.. good to be reminded again so now i m at the brim of working hard..and soon to be in the clowning stage.. :)

Faisal Admar said...

very interesting :)

... and i love the song. dad used to play it almost everyday.

i like the fake panda picture. hehe looks cute though even though it is mean! :)

One said...

What stage are we in right now? We seem to be clowning around.

Btw, your captions have been selected! Moo is changed to mooove. You'll see. I like to mooove it, mooove it!

Hayley said...

Heard about this before, in Chinese version.

Take care!

suituapui said...

Nice story. Very clever...whoever thought of it. Looks like I've yet to live the 20 years I'm getting from Monkey, clowning around and playing with my grandkids...so I'll be around for another 20 years at least then. Gee! I'll be 80!!! Pengsan!!!

Leovi said...

You're absolutely right, life really is up to 25 years, after living on borrowed time.

Charmaine Pua Li Ping said...

Pity those doggies for not being able to be themselves. Human always said they wanted to be themselves but they forced their pets to be like them.

rainfield61 said...

It's been a hard day's night, and I've been working like a dog
It's been a hard day's night, I should be sleeping like a log

MODERN ROBINSON CRUSOE said...

So maxiumum ripe age we can lived up to is 70 years LOL

First timer to these story

Isaac Tan said...

hey i read this story before somewhere, or was it someone that told me before. Interesting, funny but true :P

Lol, the last photo ... can i get a "tiger" dog too :P

Daisy said...

Ha! Clever story, Bananaz! I enjoyed that.

Seems very silly to me to dye dogs to look so crazy like that. Dogs are beautiful just the way they are--no need to change them. Always surprising what some people will do! haha! :-)

Casendra said...

Hahaha... thanks for sharing, again.

I used to 'pray' that my next generation I wanted to be a panda... but after seeing the last photo... hmnm... am giving a second thought here... hahahaha

Alice Law said...

You make this up? Tht's really really good, quite entertaining... hey, btw, one of my dog live up to 18 years old wor... hrm, mayb G*D tot she was horribly annoying(since she barked alot), so granted her another few years! LOL(jokingly)

bluedreamer27 said...

wow that's very interesting huh... i think i have heard it somewhere but thanks for refreshing it to me...
anyway those dogs are so cute especially the tiger one haha

Small Kucing said...

kesian the animals

London Caller said...

Ha ha!
I wanna become a vegetarian panda dog in my next year.
Can you put me up in a zoo?
I am kinda an exhibitionist - like to expose in front of others lah.

Oh, Kota Tinggi?
It's actually the ancient capital of Johor.
Also known as Johor Lama in the past.
It was chosen by Sultan (can't remember his name) as his base to defence Johor from the Portuguese because there was a natural fort high by Johor River.
Hence the name lah - kota as a fort, not a town.

Windsmoke. said...

Bonza jokes, as for the photos of the coloured animals YUK! :-).

Amelia's De-ssert said...

Bananaz, thanks for sharing the joke.
Aiyo...kesian the animal kena torture. Have a nice day.

HappySurfer said...

Good analogy. Thanks for the reminder.

Good thing animals don't look at mirrors otherwise these animals would suffer from split personality. LOL

Kian Fai Koh said...

I had listen to this story long time ago, thanks to you it reminds me how colorful I need to continue live it hehe :)

Bananazஇ said...

Cloudia இ My pleasure..Aloha

wenn இ tQ its an old story.

lina இ Dogs cant be dogs haha.

Bananazஇ said...

reanaclaire இ yup old story, yes you are quite close to be clowning with your grandchildren.

Faisal Admar இ Love all S&G songs they are great. Panda is most popular but kesian the dogs.

One இ Almost clowning stage haha. tQ for posting my captions. Cool with the 'mooove'.

Bananazஇ said...

Hayley இ Oh in Chinese version! This is kinda old stuff already haha.

suituapui இ The author is brilliant and to think of it matches our everyday life from all the stages. Yeah high time we should be clowns haha.

Leovi இ 25 years from kindergarten, school, college & uni are happy days until we face the real world..

Bananazஇ said...

Charmaine Pua Li Ping இ Humans are supreme can have what they fancy haha.

rainfield61 இ One of my fav from Beatles.

FiSh இ So long as they don't torture the animals..haha

Bananazஇ said...

MRC இ 70 too short can request for 30 years from the cows and horses haha.

Isaac Tan இ Wonder the neighbours would be shocked to see a 'tiger' at your compound haha.

Daisy இ If all dogs turned in Pandas they dont need WWF to protect the pandas anymore haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Casendra இ this is called transformation haha.

Alice Law இ Not my original amend here and there with the ages. Wow your dog lives up to 18 years old must have borrowed from either the mule or monkey haha.

bluedreamer27 இ Don't tell me you are thinking to turn your doggie into tiger now haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Small Kucing இ Not sure their laws about protecting the dogs guess its OK with the authority.

London Caller இ Panda dog? haha. tQ for info on Kota Tinggi.

Windsmoke இ You prefer natural.

Yee Ling said...

Not wanting to wish for a shorter or longer life span. Most important I stay healthy and happy all the times.

Bananazஇ said...

Amelia's De-ssert இ My pleasure..

HappySurfer இ Yeah if the dog sees himself as a tiger wonder what will happen? haha.

Kian Fai Koh இ Clowning stage is still very far ahead for you haha.

Sheoh Yan said...

I first heard about it in my Buddhist chanting class. This song 愛與誠 is one of my favourite Leo Ko's song, and that paragraph of lyric is classic.

Gratitude said...

I'm sure your readers/fans are able to take humour and see it for what it is ;) I don't plan to get married, so perhaps I could skip the clowning part?! And looking at all the sad cases of the oldies around me, I'm sure I prefer to stop breathing much earlier, and not be a burden to any loved-one!
+Ant+

Lrong said...

Interesting story... man, 'greedy' as ever?
;)

[SK] said...

thanks for sharing such funny yet very true story.. but of course ßanaŋazஇ's stories always started funny but brings some meaning and ended up very inspirational.. just the the different layers of a banana~~

[SK] said...

hmmm, though i find those makeover pets cute, but then a second thought, i find them rather pity.. why can't they just live as they are, their owner just wants them to look like something else?? kind of saddening.. why not the owner just dressed up like a dog and look his his/her pet instead?? just like ßanaŋazஇ is trying to look like a banana, kaka~~ :D

EastCoastLife said...

Poor doggies! They look cute but they are being exposed to the chemicals from all that dyeing.

Bananazஇ said...

Yee Ling இ Come what may with the Grace of G~d.

Sheoh Yan இ Oh yeah 愛與誠 is one of your fav. Buddhist chanting class Theravada, Mahayana or Tibetan?

Gratitude இ Can clown for nieces & nephews haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Lrong இ Very true greedy and attachment haha.

[SK] இ Whoa very inspiring comment you make my day bro. Guess the craze would not be long lived will die off naturally.

EastCoastLife இ Dyes got harmful chemicals may shortened their lifes.

Quay Po Cooks said...

I would prefer to call my clowning years which is about now as Lady Googa years. Sound Cool right? I know I am going googoo gaga real soon!!

Ron aka TheOldGeezer said...

Greetings From Southern California

I like your joke disclaimer.

Take care and have a nice day :-)

Thanks for your recent visit to My Blog

Bananazஇ said...

Quay Po Cooks இ Love your Lady Googa real cool. Getting ready to be 'por por' soon with your googoo gaga lolz

Ron aka TheOldGeezer இ Hi Ron tQ. Love your geezer-ing blog. Have a great day sunshine day like the song says it never rains in Southern California haha.

Lily Riani said...

wah... so rich ah.. doll-ing up their animal. but is it vandalism?

Pete said...

Bananaz want to have tiger styled hair? he he he

Bananazஇ said...

Lily Riani இ Not sure about the laws there. haha

Pete இ Think zebra looks better hahaha.

eugene said...

Ai yah, this time die lah, I have over stayed already,so can ask the G*D to write off the overdraft years i have used and deposit more years for me, I want to be a dog and a monkey too but for sure don't want to be a swine....

Cant blame the Chinese,money is really not a problem for them, the problem is the gap is getting bigger and bigger,slowly the rich,will get richer and the poor will be poorer,then they will be revolt,then the Chinese will come to curb this and that and the rich will then flee,then Chinese will have to strive again and then poor shall remain poor.

I have got a friend who works in China, he said when he entertains his client,(ah Kon Money lah) they will start from lunch,(good one) then drink drink drink,then they will have dinner,then drink drink drink,then they will kara ok,then they will be bevy of beauties,then they will go to the room,, my does this about 3 times a week

yvonne said...

Hehehe, read about this somewhere and it serves as a reminder now :) I guess this is a life cycle.

Re the cute pets transformation, I think it's kinda cruel, isn't it? I prefer my pet in original state, lol~

Bananazஇ said...

eugene இ Too late..haha. Yeah heard the same. Most of them have big eyes small stomach. Tend to over order, waste plenty of good food, splash money around like water.

Islam இ tQ

yvonne இ Like HappySurfer commented if the dog sees himself as 'tiger' or 'panda' wonder what will happen?

Leovi said...

Oara live life with humor the first thing is to learn to laugh at oneself.

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Bananaz, ha ha ha, love your joke. good one. Now we know.
And that pic of those dogs in China, Holy Smoke!
Poor dogs.....bet they get a fright see themselves in the mirror.
Wonder what happens when after a bath?
Have a nice day, keep well.
Lee.

London Caller said...

Come and visit Kota Tinggi lah.
We got nothing but monyet, biawak and babi hutan.
Ha ha... So I guess you can call me a Kampung Boy in Big London lah.

Bananazஇ said...

Leovi இ laughter is the best medicine. haha

Uncle Lee இ Wonder the dog would run with its tail between its leg or fight till the end when they see themselves in the mirror. tQ

London Caller இ You tak ada Kota Tinggi but in London Bahru. Bananaz also kampung boy sama sama.

Leovi said...

What you doing with the pets is really amazing, I could never imagine ending up where they can get the whims of humans.

HappySurfer said...

Hi Bananaz, good morning! Looking forward to having you link to my blog. Thank you, kind sir!

annant said...

haiyo pity the snimals.

Autumn Belle said...

In the ancient tales, I thought man always wanted to be immortal, so they go to the mountains and meditate. Now, man also has the power to control and decide the lifespan of other creatures on earth. Maybe it is ok to be a rich and pampered dog than a poor abused human being. So it depends, depends.....

bengbeng said...

given a choice i would like to b a man rather than animals :)

London Caller said...

Not lah, you're soon-to-be Kampung Ah Gong lah.
Your pakat is different now. ;)

lena said...

what do you think if those "groomed" animals take a look at the mirror themselves? must have frightened to death!! woof woof! am i a tiger or a dog now??

Bananazஇ said...

Leovi இ Getting way out of hands with the rich.

HappySurfer இ Shall take some time for my next post..hehe.

annant இ In this society you cannot be what you wanna be haha.

Bananazஇ said...

Autumn Belle இ Attachment to life is greed too. haha. The rich can splash whatever they wanna do.

Bengbeng இ That would be most people's choice to be human or perhaps super human haha.

London Caller இ Waiting to be Datuk haha.

Lena இ They have split personality bark like a dog but looked like a tiger. Their lives are in a mess.

London Caller said...

Ha ha... You need a key to wind that clock lah, Bananaz.
Tarzan doesn't have it.
Jane has the key.

I'll speak to her when I see her next time.

Oh yes, I am going to Belgium tomorrow.
Be good, I'll buy you some chocolates.

Wenny said...

Hey there Bananaz! Been awhile since I've popped in ... sorry about that. Anyway, without fail there's always something insightful to learn while pulling a big smile over my face right here on your blog.

Love the short story-telling done with a sense of humor. It just cheered me up!!!

Jo said...

I saw this joke somewhere else before. It was pretty funny.

Bananazஇ said...

London Caller இ Bananaz always good one tQ for the choc. Enjoy your trip to Belgium.

Wenny இ Hello yes been quite some time didn't see you slipping by. tQ for your supportive words.

Jo இ This joke has been in circulation for a while. Have a great weekend.

Leovi said...

I'm glad not to be a dog, good weekend.

Bananazஇ said...

Leovi இ You have a great weekend too. Enjoyed your post ~ Autumn in New York.

Leovi said...

The main feature that makes a person human are the jokes and sense of humor.

eileeninmd said...

A fun post and I love the cute animals. I especially love the tiger and the panda bears. Wonderful photos, have a great Sunday!

Bananazஇ said...

Leovi இ They say if all else fail to make a person happy just laugh.

eileeninmd இ tQ its fun to look at them though cruel to have dyes all over. You have a great Sunday too.

Life Ramblings said...

poor dogs. It makes my heart sad to think people are doing this. i don't think the dogs like it either.

Life Ramblings said...

i definitely hope the dyes are not toxic and not allergenic.

Bananazஇ said...

Life Ramblings இ When people have too much money they think wild. Hope the dyes are not toxic but dyes being dyes would have some side effects

Regina said...

That story was hillarious!
My brother painted our backyard turtle's shell maroon growing up..don't see how that was good for it either? Those dogs are wild/insulting (especially the poodle)..thanks for the laughs (no worry about the jokes). Wishing you a good day-

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question
in which I'd like to ask if you don't mind. I was interested to know how
you center yourself and clear your head before writing.
I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
I truly do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
