Creator God with very poor security
After creating the world and everything in it, he provided mankind with all necessities except fire. All requests were refused.Then one day a small boy called at the back door of Heaven asking if there were any odd jobs going. He ran errands, did chores and was always extremely reliable. In fact he made himself so indispensable that he was trusted with just about everything.
Then one quiet night he sneaked off back to Earth with the secret of fire. Which all goes to prove you can't trust a small boy with a box of matches.
We do not know whether there were any PROMETHEUS-style repercussions.
