Adam's Cost for Eve - A Joke




One day, in the Garden of Eden, Adam calls out to God, "Lord, I have a problem."


"What is thy problem, Adam?" God asks.


"Lord, I know thou created me and hast provided for me and surrounded me with yon beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, but I am just not happy."


"Why is that, Adam?" comes the reply from the heavens.


"Lord, I am lonely."


"Well Adam, in that case, I have the perfect solution. I shall create a

'woman' for thee."


"What manner of creature is a 'woman,' Lord?"


"This 'woman' will be the most intelligent, sensitive, caring, and beautifulcreature I have ever created. She will be so intelligent that she canfigure out what thou wantest before thou wantest it. She will be sosensitive and caring that she will know thy every mood and how to make thee happy. Her beauty will rival that of the heavens and earth. She willunquestioningly care for thy every need and desire. She will be the perfect companion for thee," replies the Creator.


"Truly, she soundeth wonderful."


"She will be, but this is going to cost thee, Adam."


"How much will this 'woman' cost me Lord?" Adam asks.


"She will cost thee thy right arm, thy right leg, an eye, and an ear."


Adam ponders this for a moment.


"What can I get for a rib?"
