A clown for a birthday party
A lady is throwing a party for her granddaughter.
She had gone all out...a caterer, band, and hired a clown.
Just before the party started, two bums showed up looking for a handout.
Feeling sorry for the bums, the woman told them she would give them a meal if they helped chop some wood for her.
Gratefully they headed to the rear of the house.
The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a wonderful time, except the clown hadn't shown up.
After a while the phone rang, the clown said he was stuck in traffic and couldn't make the party.
The woman was very disappointed and unsuccessfully tried to entertain the children herself.
She happened to look out the window and saw one of the bums doing a cartwheel across the lawn.
She watched in awe as he swung from tree branches, did mid air flips, and leaped high in the air.
She spoke to the other bum and said " What your friend is doing is absolutely marvelous. I have never seen such a thing.
Do you think your friend would consider repeating the performance for the children? I would pay him $50!"
The other bum says, " Well, I dunno. Let me ask him - HEY WILLIE! FOR $50 WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?"
A man is as unhappy as he has convinced himself he is.
