A bum, who obviously has seen more than his share of hard times,
approaches a well dressed gentleman on the street: “Hey, Buddy, can you
spare two dollars?”
The well dressed man responds, “You’re not going to spend it on
liquor are you?”
“No sir, I don’t drink,” the bum responds.
“You’re not going to throw it away in some crap game are you?” asks the
“No way, I don’t gamble,” answers the bum.
“You wouldn’t waste the money at a golf course for greens fees would you?”
asks the man.
“Never,” says the bum, “I don’t play golf.”
The man asks the bum if he would like to come home with him for a home
cooked meal. The bum accepts eagerly. While they are heading for the man’s
house, the bum’s curiosity gets the better of him. “Isn’t your wife going
to be angry when she sees a guy like me at your table?”
“Probably,” says the man, “but it will be worth it. I want her to see what
happens to a guy who doesn’t drink, gamble or play golf.”
