One day, sometime after the Flood, as Noah was quietly tending his fields, he heard a Voice from Above.
“Noah,” the Voice said, “I want you to build me another Ark.”
“OK,” said Noah. “What size should it be?”
“This time,” said the Voice, “I want twenty-two storeys. And when you’ve finished, I don’t want any of those elephants and giraffes. I want you to fill the Ark with water and then just have fish.”
“Fish!” said Noah. “Are you sure?”
“Yes,” said the Voice. “In fact, I don’t want any sort of fish. I just want carp.”
“You want an Ark with twenty-two storeys filled with carp?” said Noah. “Why do you want that?”
“Well,” said the Voice, “I just fancied a multi-storey carp Ark.”
