Tips the scales
On his humble beginnings.
Editor’s note: Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A local millionare was asked to give a speech at a high school about how he had made his way in the world.
At the end of the speech, he stated, “When I came to this town, I had all my possessions inside a neck scarf tied to a pole over my shoulder. Now look at me! Thanks to this town, I now have over $2 million dollars and own a nice store. You too can do this if you try!”
The local reporter was impressed and hung around after the ceremony. Finally he was able to ask the millionare a question. “Tell me,” he said eagerly. “What did you have in your scarf when you arrived at this town?”
“Hmmm,” said the milliionare. “Well, I had $500,000 in cash and $1 million in negotiable notes.”
