Dumb Child

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a fifty sen coin in one hand and two ten sen coins in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"

The boy takes the two ten sen coins and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store.

"Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take two ten sen coins instead of one fifty sen coin?"

The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the fifty sen coin, the game is over."

Moral lesson : When you think the other person is dumb, you are making a fool of yourself.
