The owner of a company tells his employees one day
“You worked very hard this year, therefore the company’s profits increased dramatically. As a reward, I’m giving everyone a check for $5,000.”
Thrilled, the employees gather around and high-five one another.
“And if you work with the same zeal next year, I’ll sign those checks!”
Little Johnny was painting a picture of cows
The class was told to paint a picture of cows grazing in a meadow.
Soon, Little Johnny lifts a hand that he’s finished and shows the teacher a blank sheet of paper.
“But Johnny, you didn’t paint anything on it?” says the teacher.
“Well, the cows have eaten all the grass and since there was no grass left, they just went away.”
