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
"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?"
the man asked.
"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said.
"I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on greens 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!"
"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light
district instead of food?" the man asked.
"What disease would I get for ten lousy ucks?"exclaimed the homeless man.
"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the
money.??Instead, I'm going to take you home for a
terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be
furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty,
and I probably smell pretty disgusting."
The man replied, "That's okay. It's important for her
to see what a man looks like after he has given up beer,
fishing, golf, and sex."
