Once upon a time, God was missing for six days. Eventually, Michael,
the archangel, found him, resting on the seventh day.
He inquired of God. "Where have you been?"
God sighed a deep sigh of satisfaction, and proudly pointed downwards
through the clouds, "Look, Michael. Look what I've made."
Archangel Michael looked puzzled, and said, "What is it?"
"It's a planet," replied God, "and I've put Life on it. I'm going to
call it Earth and it's going to be a great place of balance."
"Balance?" inquired Michael, still confused.
God explained, pointing to different parts of earth. "For example,
northern Europe will be a place of great opportunity and wealth, while southern
Europe is going to be poor. Over there I've placed a continent of
white people, and over there is a continent of black people."
"Balance in all things," God continued pointing to different
"This one will be extremely hot, while this one will be very cold and
covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a land mass
and said, "What's that one?"
"Ah," said God "That's Washington State, the most glorious place on
earth. There are beautiful streams, hills, and forests. The people from
Washington State are going to be handsome, modest, intelligent and humorous, and
they are going to be found traveling the world. They will be extremely
sociable, hardworking, high achieving, and they will be known throughout the
world as diplomats, and carriers of peace."
Michael gasped in wonder and admiration, but then proclaimed, "What
about balance, God? You said there would be balance."
God smiled, "There is another Washington...wait til you see the idiots
I put there."
