Laugh a little
Maurice, Sam and Benny always met once a week in the park to discuss the world’s situation. On one occasion, they tried to solve the problem of life.
"What is the problem of life?" asked Benny.
The more they talked about it, the more they thought they knew the answer. The problem of life is that everyone has worries. “If people didn't have any worries,” said Sam, “then life would be easy.”
But now that they knew, another question remained, how can we three end our worries?
They thought for a while and then Maurice said, “Why don’t we hire somebody to do all the worrying for us so that we can then have it easy?”
Sam said, “Great idea. It wouldn’t be easy, I know, but between us, we could pay him well to make up for the difficulty of the role.”
So they all agreed to chip in to pay someone $1200 a month to do all their worrying for them.
They were very happy with this decision until Sam pointed out the flaw.
"Tell me," he said, “If the man is making $1200 each month, what has he got to worry about?”
