We often think of children as being young, naive and innocent but in a way, that is what adds to their charm. It is something that we appreciate about them and sometimes, it can even lead to some rather funny situations. That was the case in this joke about a young boy who is being picked on by a barber. It seems as if the barber is getting the best of him but when you see his comeback, you will be laughing out loud.
One day, a seemingly poor boy, carrying a limp and wearing nothing but dirty clothes, entered a crowded salon. As he did, the barber bent down to one of his customers and whispered in his ear.
He said: “That kid is the most stupid child in the whole city! Just wait, I’ll show you.”
The hairdresser retrieved a note from his pocket, one worth $100. In the other hand, he held two single dollar bills.
He then said to the boy: “Here, boy, pick a hand. Which one do you want?”
The youngster judged both hands carefully, before settling on the two dollar bills.
“Haha, what did I tell you?” the barber laughed. He turned and gave his customer a broad smile as the boy left.
“That idiot never learns.”
A short while later, the customer left the shop and went out into the street.
There, he spotted the kid sitting in an ice-cream shop just down the road.
Thinking something wasn’t quite right, the customer entered the ice cream parlour and said: “Hello, young man, I have a question for you. Why do you always take the dollar bills and not the $100?”
The boy took a break from enjoying his ice cream, sat up straight with a smile on his face and replied: “The day I take the $100 is the day this game ends.”
