Working For a Living ...
A bum comes up to the front door of a nice looking farmhouse and raps
gently on the door. When the owner answers, the bum asks him,
"Please, sir, could you give me something to eat? I haven't had a
good meal in several days."
The rich farmer says, "I have made a fortune in my lifetime farming and
people. I've never given anything away for nothing. However,
if you go around the back, you will see a gallon of paint and a clean
paint brush. If you will paint my porch in the back of the house I
will give you a good meal."
So the poor fellow goes around back and a while later he again knocks on
the door. The owner asks, "Finished already? Good.
Come on in. Sit down. The cook will bring your meal right in."
The bum says, "Thank you very much, sir. But there's something
that I think you should know. It's not a Porsche you got there.
It's a BMW."
