As a young boy enters a barber shop the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you.”
The barber puts a two dollar coin in one hand and three fifty cent coins in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?”
The boy takes the $1.50 and leaves.
“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 a dairy with an ice cream. “Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the three fifty cent coins instead of the two dollars?”
The boy licks his ice cream and replies, “Because the day I take the two dollars, the game is over!”
