Default Wise Christman Story

Diver Dan came to mind instantly as I read this story.


Quote:
A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly
dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars
for dinner.

The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and asked, "If I give you
this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"

"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.

"Will you use it to go fishing or hunting instead of buying food?" the man
asked.

"No, I don't waste time fishing or hunting," the homeless man said. "I need
to spend all my time trying to stay alive."

"Will you spend this on green fees at a golf course instead of food?" the
man asked.

"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20
years!"

"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going
to take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."

The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for
doing that?

The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her to see what a man
looks like after he has given up drinking, fishing/hunting and golf .
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
