Little Joe always gets teased about being dumb. One of the favorite jokes is that the kids offer him a nickel and a dime to see which one he chooses. Stupidly, he always chooses the nickel and off the kids go laughing.

One day a kindly neighbor can’t watch it anymore and says, “Joe, my boy, a dime is worth more than a nickel!”

“I know,” smiles Joe, “but if I keep picking the nickel, they won’t stop the joke and I already got 15 dollars this way.”
