A young boy walks into 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 then takes out a dollar bill and two quarters. He asks the young boy, "Which do you want, son?" The boy takes the two quarters and leaves.
"What did I tell you?" the barber says. "Poor kid never learns!"
The customer leaves after his haircut and sees the same young boy walking out of an ice cream shop. "Can I ask you a question?" he says to the boy. "Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"
The boy licks his ice cream cone and replies, "The day I take the dollar, the game is over!"
