Once upon a time


War Hero
Once upon a time in the Kingdom of Heaven, God went missing for six days.Eventually, Michael the Arch-Angel found him on the seventh day, resting. 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." said God.
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,
North America will be a place of great opportunity and wealth while
South America is going to be poor; the Middle East over there will
be a hot spot and Russia will be a cold spot. Over there I've placed
a continent of white people and over there is a continent of black
people," God continued, pointing to different countries.
"This one will be extremely hot and arid while this one will be very
cold and covered in ice."
The Archangel, impressed by God's work, then pointed to a small land mass and said What's that one?"
"Ah ," said God. "That's New Zealand, the most glorious place on
Earth. There are beautiful lakes, rivers, streams and hills.The people from New Zealand are going to be modest, intelligent and humorous and they're going to be found traveling the world. They'll be extremely sociable, hard-working and 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 will be BALANCE!" God replied wisely, "Wait until you see the ******* I'm putting next to them. I call them Australians!!!"
