395. Who's The Stupid One?


395. "My son, the polar bear," Dad said. "Every New Year's Day, you and a thousand other Coney Island loonies jump into the freezing ocean. How stupid is that?" Nick said, "It's not stupid, Dad. It's fun, it's free, and it's healthy. And we do it every Sunday in the winter, not just on New Year's Day. Look at what you do every Sunday. You spend $20 for golf balls, which you usually lose, and $50 for greens fees. You stand around for six hours in the heat, cold, or rain waiting for the golfers in front of you to mosey out of the way. And you come home upset because, as usual, you didn't break 100. Now, how stupid is that?" Dad said, "Don't knock it till you try it." Nick said, "You're right, Dad. Don't knock it till you try it. Come join us for a dip next Sunday!" 3.0
