Noah was told that of all the animals on the ark, only the adders refused to obey God’s command and go forth and multiply.
“Well,” said Noah. “I’ll have to ask the Lord what to do about that.” And so he prayed to God and said, “These snakes won’t go forth and multiply”
And God said, “Don’t worry. Find some the trees and saw them into logs and create a platform sitting upon four legs. Then put the snakes on the platform.”
“But how will that help the snakes?” asked Noah.
“Easy,” replied God, “Everyone knows even adders can multiply using a log table!”
