After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came
to visit Eve. "So, how is everything going?" inquired God.
"It is all so beautiful, God," she replied. "The
sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking, the smells,
the sights, everything is wonderful, but I have just
one problem. It is these breasts you have given me.
The middle one pushes the other two out and I am
constantly knocking them with my arms, catching them
on branches and snagging them on bushes. They are a
real pain," reported Eve.
And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her body came in
pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc..........she felt that having only two breasts
might leave her body more "symmetrically balanced," as she put it.
"That is a fair point," replied God, "But it was my
first shot at this, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I
figured that you needed only half ! of those, but I see that you are
right. I will fix it up right away."
And God reached down, removed the middle breast and
tossed it into the bushes.
Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden of Eden.
"Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?"
"Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one
oversight on your part. You see, all the animals are
paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has her
bull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone."
God thought for a moment and said, "You know, Eve,
you are right. How could I have overlooked this? You
do need a mate and I will immediately create a man
from a part of you."
"Now let's see............where did I put the useless boob?"
Now, doesn't THAT make more sense than the rib story?
