|A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly
dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of pounds for dinner.
The man took out his wallet, extracted ten pounds and asked:
"If I give you this money, will you buy some beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you spend this on a days trout fishing instead of food?" the man asked.
"Are you MAD!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't fished in thirty years
"Well," said the man, "I'm not going to give you money. Instead, I'm going to
take you home for a shower and a terrific dinner cooked by my wife"
The homeless man was astounded.
"Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that?
The man replied:
"That's okay, It's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has given up drinking and fishing."
