And the Funnies...
After creating heaven and earth
, God created Adam and Eve. The first thing he said was, "Don't."
"Don't what?" Adam replied.
"Don't eat the forbidden fruit," God said.
"Forbidden fruit? We have forbidden fruit? Hey, Eve! We've got forbidden fruit!"
"Do NOT eat the forbidden fruit!" commanded God.
"Why not?" said Adam.
"Because I am you Father and I said so!" God replied.
A few minutes later, God saw Adam and Eve having an apple. He was angry and said, "Didn't I tell you not to eat the forbidden fruit?"
"Uh huh," Adam replied.
"Then why did you?" said the Father.
"I dunno," said Eve.
"She started it!" Adam said.
Then God decided on Adam and Eve's punishment: They should have children of their own.
