Eve and Adam
One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve calls out to G-d, "Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know You've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and
all of these wonderful animals, and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm
just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples."
"Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man', Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous
ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly. All in all,
he'll give you a hard time. But, he'll be bigger and faster and more
muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about
and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, and will help to populate the Earth."
"Sounds great," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah, well. He's better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. But, you
can only have him on one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
