A lady is throwing a party for her granddaughter, and had gone all
out..... a caterer, band, and a hired clown. Just before the party
started, two tramps showed up looking for a handout. Feeling sorry for the
tramps, the woman told them that she would give them a meal if they will
help chop some wood for her out back. Gratefully, they headed to the rear
of the house.
The guests arrived, and all was going well with the children having a
wonderful time. But the clown hadn't shown up. After a half and hour, the
clown finally called to report that he was stuck in traffic, and would
probably not make the party at all.
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
tramps doing cartwheels 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 tramp 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 this performance for the children at the
party? I would pay him £50!"
The other tramp says, "Well, I dunno. Let me ask him.
'HEY WILLIE! FOR £50,
WOULD YOU CHOP OFF ANOTHER TOE?"
