I read a joke a couple of weeks ago, and for some reason it keeps popping back into my head. I suppose some women would find it offensive or sexist or something, but I think people need to learn to laugh at themselves more and just appreciate humor for what it is.
The joke went like this:
Adam was walking around the Garden of Eden feeling very lonely, so God asked Adam, “What is wrong with you?”
Adam said, “Lord, I don’t have anyone to talk to.”
God said, “Then I will give you a companion, and she will be called ‘woman’. This person will cook for you and wash your clothes, she will always agree with every decision you make. She will bear your children and never ask you to get up in the middle of the night to take care of them. She will not nag you, and will always be the first to admit she was wrong when you’ve had a disagreement. She will never ‘have a headache’, and will freely give love and compassion whenever needed. She will never question your behaviour or the company you keep. She will support you and understand that you have important decisions to make throughout your life and don’t have time for nonsense…”
Adam asked God, “What will this woman cost?”
God said, “An arm and a leg…”
Adam thought for a moment, then said, “What can I get for a rib?”
I guess the rest is history.
