One day in the Garden of Eden, Eve called out to God:
— Lord, I have a problem!
— What’s the problem, Eve?
— Lord, I know you’ve created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals, and that hilarious funny snake, but I’m just not happy.
— Why is that, Eve? came the reply from above.
— Lord, I am lonely. And I’m sick to death of apples.
— Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you.
— What’s a ‘man’, Lord?
— This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous 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, faster and more muscular than you. He’ll also need your advice to think properly. He’ll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about, hunting fleet-footed ruminants, and not altogether bad in the sack.
— Sounds great, says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow. What’s the catch, Lord?
— Yeah, well…. you can have him on one condition.
— What’s that, Lord?
— You’ll have to let him believe that I made him first.
