It seems that God received a delegation of animals complaining of their lot. They were an elephant, a giraffe, and a hen.
The elephant complained, “Lord, I HATE THIS TRUNK YOU have given me. It gets in the way, and makes me look like a fool!”
The Lord said, “Don’t complain. It lets you pick up food, drink water, etc. without getting wet!”
Next the giraffe complained, “Lord, I HATE THIS LONG NECK! It makes me top heavy, I get terrible neck pains, and people laugh at me!”
The Lord said, “Don’t complain. It lets you pick the best fruit and leaves from the high branches, and allows you to see a distance.”
The hen spoke up, “Lord, I don’t want to complain, but either let me have a bigger hole or smaller eggs.”
