Joke: Smarter Than You Think!
SMARTER THAN YOU THINK
- Submitted by AJosh
There was a little boy named Johnny who used to
hang out at the local corner market. The owner didn't
know what Johnny's problem was, but the boys would
constantly tease him.
They would always comment that he was two bricks shy
of a load, or two pickles short of a barrel. To prove
it, sometimes they would offer Johnny his choice between
a nickel (5 cents) and a dime (10 cents) and John would
always take the nickel --
they said, because it was bigger.
One day after John 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, or what?"
Slowly, Johny turned toward the store owner and a big
grin appeared on his face and Johnny said,
"Well, if I took the dime, they'd stop doing it,
and so far I have saved $20!"
