Smile of the Day

Life is getting much too serious, yes? Who doesn't need a daily smile?

Father and son

A father and son were working a one-mule farm where they barely eked out a living. But the son kept playing the scratch-and-win tickets, and one day he won $50,000. He was so thrilled he burned rubber all the way to the big city to collect the money; and when he got home, he told his father the good news and handed him a $50.

The father looked at the money for a moment. "Son," he finally said, "you know I have always been careful with what little money we had. I didn't spend it on whiskey or women or frivolous things. In fact, I couldn't even afford a licence to legally marry your Ma."

"Pa!" exclaimed the son, "do you know what that makes me?"

"Yep," said the old man, fingering the fifty-dollar bill, "and a damn cheap one too."
