The poor farmer and his wife had worked really hard all their lives. They had scrimped and saved for years so that they could give their son a good education and finally send him to college.
As soon as their son had enrolled at college, he started to grow a beard.
Next, he grew a large moustache and sideburns to go with the beard.
He was so pleased with his new facial adornment, he had his picture taken and sent it off to his parents.
On the back of the photo he scrawled “How do you like it? Don’t I look like a count?”
A few days later, the son received this angry note from his parents: “You idiot! It cost us a fortune to send you to college and you can’t even spell!”
Think about it…
