    Jose and Carlos are both beggars. They beg in different areas of town.

    Carlos begs for the same amount of time as Jose, but only collects about eight or nine dollars a day.

    Every day, Jose brings home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills. He drives a Mercedes, lives in a mortgage-free house, and has lots of cash to spend.

    "Hey, amigo," Carlos says to Jose, "I work just as long and hard as you do, so how come you bring home a suitcase full of ten dollar bills every day?"

    Jose says, "Look at your sign, what does it say?"

    Carlos' sign reads;



    I have no work, a wife and
    six kids to support.





    "What's wrong with that?" Carlos asks him.

    "No wonder you only get eight or nine dollars a day!"

    Carlos says, "Alright, so what does your sign say?"

    Jose's sign reads:


    I only need ten dollars
    to get back to
    Mexico

    Karen Armstrong: Let's revive the Golden Rule | Video on TED.com


    "To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
    To the last syllable of recorded time,
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
    And then is heard no more: it is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing."

    Shakespeare, Macbeth

    Heard this joke before. I checked this post because I thought you were talking about the two guys that keep my lawn mowed.

    I'd pay $10 each if they truly went back over the border.
