Joke for the Day:

I woke up today with this joke in my head:

So there was a guy who worked downtown and everyday when he was walking to work he would see this homeless guy always in the same spot with a cardboard sign that read:

“Buy me a beer and I’ll show you the secret to happiness.”

Of course the guy chuckled to himself every time he saw it but months went by and he’d always see the homeless guy there, same spot, same sign:

“Buy me a beer and I’ll show you the secret to happiness.”

One day the guy lost his job and he was feeling really depressed. On his way home, he saw the homeless guy there – same spot same sign:

“Buy me a beer and I’ll show you the secret to happiness.”

And the guy thought “what the heck I’ll give it a try”.

So he buys the homeless guy a beer and the homeless guy guzzles it down all in one gulp.

The guy says “Hey you’re supposed to tell me the secret to happiness!”

The homeless guy says “Buy me another beer and I’ll tell you.”

So the guy buys him another beer and of course the homeless guy guzzles it down all in one gulp. This happens one more time without the homeless guy revealing anything.

After the homeless guy guzzles down the third beer and asks for a fourth, the other guy is furious and threatens to bring a police officer over.

He screams at the homeless guy: “Show me the secret to happiness now or I’m bringing that cop over here.”

So the homeless guy half drunk now with a huge smile on his face says “O.K. I’m gonna show you the secret to happiness. Get ready cause I’m only gonna say this once. Are you ready?”

The guy screams again in a demanding tone: “Yes show me the secret to happiness now!”

The homeless guy says: “Well there are 2 secrets to happiness – so today you get a bargain. There’s one secret for me and one secret for you. The secret to happiness for me is getting people to buy me beer. The secret to happiness for you is giving without expecting anything back.
