Adam was feeling terribly bored in the Garden of Eden. How long can one stay all alone!
"I want company," said he to God.
"Fine. But I need something to shape a companion."
"You can't create something out of nothing?"
"I can. But it would be just of the air, airy. You want something of the earth, earthy. How about giving me your arm. I shall turn it into....? "No, God. I hate the idea of being one-handed."
"Then give a leg?"
"Not till I am alive."
"Then what can you spare?" God asked.
"Let me think," Adam started counting his eyes, his nose and then his ribs. His eyes brightened. "Take a rib. Just one rib," he smiled at God.
God removed the rib, waved his hand and changed it into Eve.
Adam wasn't pleased. He scowled, "This is to be my companion?" God walked away saying, "What more did you expect of a rib?"
St Peter organized a millennium party and sent out invitations to all the angels and saints. He had their addresses. But he ran into trouble when he wanted to invite Adam and Eve. He told his secretary, "Can you send someone to invite Adam and Eve, the original ones who lived in the Garden of Eden?"
The secretary assigned an ace detective to do that. He had no problem tracking down the only couple who didn't have belly buttons."
Adam and Eve were the centre of a debate in which a politician, a doctor and an engineer were involved.
The doctor asserted that his was the oldest profession. "God created Adam and Adam demanded that he be given a companion. God demanded Adam to spare a rib which could be turned into a suitable companion. And that needed a delicate operation, one that demanded exceptional medical skill," so argued the doctor.
"Fine, as far as your argument goes. But you forget that someone struggled against the chaos and confusion that existed and constructed the earth in six days. That is where the engineering skill was first fully exploited," the engineer sounded quite confident that he had a perfectly sewed up case.
"I won't deny you just credit. But who do you think created the chaos and the confusion in the first place?" the politician had the last laugh.
