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!"
