Today’s #jokefortheday is brought to you by two young friends who pondered about life and their death over a few drinks.


Two friends around the age of 20 were talking about their predicted life span, with one thinking that he has a longer life ahead of him than his friend.

The guy then reasoned out that his grandfather lived until 96-years-old. His friend was surprised and asked, “Ninety-six? What finally got him?” The man replied: “Alcohol and women.”

As a word of caution, the friend told the guy to be careful because “both will get you in the end.” He replied:

“Well actually, no, it’s not what you think. Toward the end, Grandpa couldn’t get either one, so he just laid down and died.”

Life can be such a beautiful thing, but often we can’t explain how our years were planned out to be. Fortunately, a Reddit user explained “the meaning of life.”


When God decided to create on the first day, he made the dog and tasked him to “sit all day” in front of his home and to bark at anyone who comes across him.

He granted the dog a life span of twenty years, but the dog rebutted: “That’s a long time to be barking. How about only ten years and I’ll give you back the other ten?” And so, God agreed.


The following day, God created the monkey and tasked him to “entertain people” with tricks to bring about joy and laughter, and in return, a 20-year life-span will be granted. The monkey said:

“Monkey tricks for twenty years? That’s a pretty long time to perform. How about I give you back ten like dog did?”

God agreed to the monkey’s offer. On the third day, God created a cow and tasked him to “suffer under the sun” to help feed the farmer’s family. For that, God gave a life span of 60 years. The cow replied:

“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?”


Again, God agreed. On the fourth day, he decided to create humans to “eat, sleep, play, marry, and enjoy life” for a life span of 20 years. The human replied:

“Only 20 years? Could you possibly give me my 20, the 40 the cow gave back, the ten the monkey gave back, and the ten the dog gave back?”


God, as always, agreed to give the human a life span of 80 years, including all the ones the previous animals refused. The user explained:

“So that is why for our first 20 years, we eat, sleep, play, and enjoy ourselves. For the next 40 years, we slave in the sun to support our family. For the next ten years, we do monkey tricks to entertain the grandchildren. And for the last ten years, we sit on the front porch and bark at everyone.”
