God was just about done creating humans. He was feeling pretty satisfied with his work, but he had two parts left over.
He couldn’t decide how to split them between Adam and Eve, so he thought he might just as well ask them.
“I’ve got two things for you, but you’ll have to decide who gets what. The first thing is the ability to pee standing up…”
Adam interrupted, “Oh please give that to me! I’d love to be able to do that! It seems like just the sort of thing a man should have. Please! Pleeease! Give it to me!”
On and on he went like an excited little boy, bouncing up and down.
Eve just smiled and told God that if Adam really wanted it so badly, he could have it.
So God gave Adam the ability to pee standing up.
Adam was so excited that he just started whizzing all over the place – first on the side of a rock, then he wrote his name in the sand, and then he ‘did the helicopter’ with his thing.
“Look Eve, I’m a sprinkler!”
God and Eve watched him with amusement and then God said to Eve, “Well, I guess you’re kind of stuck with the last thing I have left.”
Eve asked, “What’s that?”
God said, “Brains.”
