A long time ago, when Adam was still by himself, lonely in the Garden of Eden and desiring of companionship, he broached the concept of a companion, describing what he wanted: A beautiful person, always understanding, logical, and constantly ready to please him in the marital bed, or even in a meadow, as it was in the Garden of Eden. God mulled over the request, and after much thought told Adam he could of course do this for him, but it was difficult, and hence expensive, so it would cost him “an arm and a leg”. Adam, sort of cheap, mulled this offer over and then made a counteroffer. “What can I get for just one rib?”
