Jacob is always being teased by the other neighborhood boys for not being so smart.
Their favorite joke is to offer Jacob his choice between a nickel and a dime — Jacob always takes the nickel. One day, after Jacob takes the nickel, a neighbor man takes him aside and says, “Jacob, those boys are making fun of you. Don’t you know that a dime is worth more than a nickel, even though the nickel’s bigger?” Jacob grins and says, “Well, if I took the dime, they’d stop doing it, and so far I’ve made $10!”
A man being mugged by two thugs put up a tremendous fight! Finally, the thugs subdued him and took his wallet. Upon finding only two dollars in the wallet, the surprised thief said “Why did you put up such a fight?” To which the man promptly replied “I was afraid that you would find the $200 hidden in my shoe!”
A policeman in the big city stops a man in a car with a pig in the front seat. “What are you doing with that pig?” “I saw him walking down the street and picked him up, I didn’t know what to do.” said the driver. The police exclaimed, “You should take it to the farm.” The following week, the same policeman sees the same man with the horse again in the front seat, with both of them wearing sunglasses. The policeman pulls him over. “I thought you were going to take that horse to the farm!” The man replied, “I did. We had such a good time we are going to the beach this weekend!”
