There was a young lad named Johnny who used to hang out at the local General Store.

The owner didn’t know what Johnny’s problem was, but he could see that the boys would always be out there teasing him.

The boys would always comment that he was two bricks shy of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel.

To prove their point, sometimes they would offer Johnny a choice between a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents). Johnny would always take the nickel (they said) because it was bigger.

One day, after Johnny grabbed the nickel, the store owner took him aside and said, “Johnny, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don’t know the dime is worth more than the nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it’s bigger than the dime or what?”

With a big grin on his face, Johnny slowly turned toward the store owner.

“Well”, he answered, “If I took the dime, they’d stop doing it. So far I’ve saved $20!”
