One day in the Garden of Heaven, Eve calls out to God and says, ” My Lord, I have a problem!”
“What’s the problem, Eve?” God asks to her.
“My Lord,” she says, “I know you’ve created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these amazing animals, and that hilarious snake, but I’m just not happy.”
“Why are not you happy Eve?” came the reply from above.
“My Lord, I am lonely. And I’m sick to death of apples,” she says.
“Well, Eve, in that case, I will fix your problem. My solution is I shall create a man for you,” the good Lord tells her.
“What’s a ‘man’, Lord?” she inquires.
“This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressivetendencies, a huge 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 not altogether bad in the sack.”
“Sounds cool,” says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
“Yeah, well. He’s better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, you can have him on one condition.”
“What’s that condition, My Lord?” Eva asks.
“You’ll have to let him believe that I made him first.”
