Short Story about Man, the Dog and the Burro. Told by Iris McShea




Sorry, the audio sucks on this. Need earphones.


0:04
the story is about the man the dog and a
0:07
burro. when God created the universe he
0:11
got, called the man with his dog and his
0:15
burro he told them this is the universe
0:18
I am creating you will dominate the
0:21
burro the burro will work for you
0:23
you will get to live 60 years and the
0:26
burro we get to live 30 so God called
0:31
the burro and wanted to explain the
0:34
things that he needed to do for men a
0:36
lot of hard work probably not eating too
0:39
much sacrifices so the burro tells
0:42
ah God well god is that is not the
0:46
case I want you to take ten years away
0:49
from me I we want to live only 20 so
0:52
God said done and the old man says oh I
0:55
want the extra
0:56
10 s'okay God gave it to him comes the
1:00
dog and he said you are to be
1:03
called dog man's best friend you will
1:07
have also you will enjoy your 
1:10
master but you need to be subjugated
1:13
to your master you have to do whatever
1:16
the master says no no matter how bad you
1:19
think it is and you will have 30 years
1:22
of life so the dog says well God I want
1:27
you to take ten years off me because that
1:30
will be too much for me to be so long
1:33
with a master and I have to do
1:35
everything so the man said God please
1:37
give me the extra ten years so that
1:42
means 60 years that he was the average
1:44
lifespan of the man plus 10 from the burro is
1:47
70 and 10 from the dog is 80 so the moral
1:53
of the story is that man asked for too
1:57
much now he spends 60 years of his life
2:01
living it normal then 10 years of his
2:04
life living a desperate and sick and bored and
2:09
the rest of his life alone with nobody
2:12
to talk to did you like the story
2:20
of course if I wouldn't get nervous I
2:22
will you but it's true though my grandpa
2:28
said it's true think about it don't us
2:33
you know live most of our later years
2:36
by ourselves because we live too long we
2:41
should stay stuck to the 60 years rather
2:43
than 80 and 90 and 100.
