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:
Dad: Son, I want you to marry the girl of my choice.
Son: No way, Dad.
Dad: But Son, she’s the daughter of world’s richest man.
Son: Why didn’t you say so? Consider it done.
Then his dad goes to that richest man.
Dad: I want your daughter to marry my son.
Rich man: No, why would I ever permit that?
Dad: Because he’s the COO of the World Bank.
Rich man: Why didn’t you say so? Consider it done.
Then the dad goes to the president of the World Bank.
Dad: I want you to appoint my son COO of the World Bank.
Bank president: Never! Why would I do something like that?
Dad: Because he’s the son-in-law of the world’s richest man.
Bank president: Why didn’t you say so? Consider it done.
