A Hard Day's Work

grandfather joke picture

"Grandpa," asked the little boy. "How did you get to be so rich?"

"Well, my boy," replied the old man, tousling the youngster's head.  "In 1932 it was the middle of the Great Depression, and I was down to my last nickel. I invested that nickel in an apple, spent the whole day polishing it and, at the end of the day, sold it for ten cents. The next day I invested those ten cents in two apples, spent the whole day day polishing them, and sold them at 5 pm for 20 cents. I continued this for a month, by the end of which I'd accumulated a fortune of $1.37.

Then your Gammy's father died and left us two million dollars."
