A young boy went up to his father and asked him, ‘Dad, what is the difference between ‘potentially’ and ‘realistically’?’
The father thought for a moment, then answered, ‘Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars.
Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars,
and then ask your brother if he’d sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars.
Come back and tell me what you learn from that.
So the boy went to his mother and said ‘Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?’
The mother replied ‘Of course I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids’ to a great University!’
The boy then went to his sister and asked ‘Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?’ The girl replied ‘Oh my Gawd! I LOVE Brad Pitt. I would sleep with him in a heartbeat, are you nuts?’
The boy then went to his brother and asked ‘Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?’
‘Of course’ the brother replied. ‘Do you know what a million bucks would buy?’
The boy pondered the answers for a few days and then went back to his dad.
His father asked him, ‘Did you find out the difference between potentially’ and realistically’?’
The boy replied, ‘Yes, ‘Potentially’ you and I are sitting on three million dollars.
But ‘realistically’, we’re living with two hookers and a queer.’
