A boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, “This is the dumbest kid in the world. Just watch – I’ll prove it to you.”
The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, “Which do you want, son?”
The boy takes the quarters and walks out of the shop.
“Told you so!” said the barber. “That kid is such a fool!”
Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same boy coming out of an ice cream store with a big cone.
“Hey, buddy! Can I ask you something?” the man says. “Why did you take the quarters off the barber instead of the dollar bill?”
The boy licked his cone and replied, “Because the day I take the dollar, the game is over!”
