Eve's side of the story

After three weeks in the Garden of Eden, God came to visit Eve. "So,how is everything going?" inquired God.
"It is all so beautiful, God," she replied. "The sunrises and sunsetsare breathtaking, the smells, the sights, everything is wonderful,but I have just one problem.
It's these breasts you have given me. The middle one pushes theother two out and I am constantly knocking them with my arms,catching them on branches and snagging them on bushes. They're areal pain."
And Eve went on to tell God that since many other parts of her bodycame in pairs, such as her limbs, eyes, ears, etc. She felt thathaving only two breasts might leave her body more "symmetricallybalanced".
"That's a fair point," replied God, "But it was my first shot atthis, you know. I gave the animals six breasts, so I figured thatyou needed only half of those, but I see that you are right. I willfix it up right away."
And God reached down, removed the middle breast and tossed it intothe bushes.
Three weeks passed and God once again visited Eve in the Garden ofEden.
"Well, Eve, how is my favorite creation?"
"Just fantastic," she replied, "But for one oversight. You see, allthe animals are paired off. The ewe has a ram and the cow has herbull. All the animals have a mate except me. I feel so alone."
God thought for a moment and said, "You know, Eve, you are right.How could I have overlooked this? You do need a mate and I willimmediately create a man from a part of you. Let's see....where didI put that useless boob?"
Now doesn't THAT make more sense than all that crap about the rib?
