innocentnaiveboy Posted September 30, 2003 Share Posted September 30, 2003 a boy goes to a fair, and comes across a stall with an old man.... the man beckons the boy over and produces a pen and piece of paper. he tells the boy that he reckons he can write the boys exact weight on the paper. and bets him 50 pounds he can do so. he says that if he is correct the boy must pay him 5 pounds, but if he gets it wrong he will indeed give the kid 50 pounds. the boy looks around and sees no scales anywhere, therefore he thinks that even if the old man gets it correct, he will just lie and tell him he is wrong. easy money. anyway, the events unfold, and the boy still ends up giving the guy 5 pounds.......why????
