JOKE OF THE WEEK, 18 Nov 2013
Three boys went into a drug store. The first asked for 5 cents worth of licorice. The pharmacist went into the back of the store, fetched a ladder, climbed up to the top shelf and took 5 cents worth of licorice out of a jar. Then he put the ladder away and gave the licorice to the first boy.
The second boy asked also for 5 cents worth of licorice. The Pharmacist was upset: “Couldn’t you have told this to me when I was up there? And you,” he asked the third boy, “do you also want 5 cents worth of licorice?” He said no.
After the grocer had put the ladder away for the second time, he asked the third boy what he wanted. He said, “10 cents worth of licorice, please.”
