:JOKE: Adam and Eve Were Egyptians!

A German, an Englishman, and an Egyptian went to an art museum and were spending some time in front of the painting of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. After observing the painting for a while an intrigued observer asked the 3 gentlemen where they thought Adam and Eve's origins could be from.

The German said, "Look at the perfection of their bodies. She with her slender and well formed figure and he with that athletic body and bulging muscles. There is no doubt they must be of German origin."

Shaking his head in disagreement, the Englishman comments, "It can't be! Note the serenity on their faces, their delicate poise, the sobriety in their gestures. They could only be English."

After a few more seconds of contemplation, the Egyptian exclaims, "I do NOT agree with ANY of your theories! Look closer: they don't have clothes, they don't have shoes, and they don't even have shelter. ALL they have is ONE apple to eat and to top it all off it is prohibited! They are sad. They don't protest and they STILL think they are in Paradise!?? They are definitely Egyptians."

  1. LOL...I can't understand the words but get the gist of the video. Too funny. Who knows where Adam and Eve come from. It's possibility. I think they could come from any nationality really. Very good :) Love the colors on this and the header is excellent :)
