A young boy walks into a barbers shop, and the barber, on seeing him come in, whispers to the customer whose hair he is cutting, “This has to be the dumbest kid in the world, watch while I prove it to you.”
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks him,”Which do you want, son?”
The boy takes the quarters and leaves the dollar bill.
“What did I tell you?” said the barber. “That kid never learns!”
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store and says, “Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?”
The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game’s over!”
