Topic: Yesterday’s Joke
Once a very successful liquor barron received a letter from a father of a teen-age son. The letter requested an appointment with him so that the father can teach the son some valuable lesson for his life.
Flattered, he gave the appointment. Upon the visit, the father requested the liquor barron to give the young man some idea about how the barron became successful.
“You won’t believe that when I started, I just had a small farm with some sugarcane planted. Through my hard work, diligence, smart marketing, today I am a formidable name in my industry.
In 30 years, I have world class breweries. I buy barley for beer, potatoes for vodka and grapes for wine and wheat for whiskey and sugarcane for rum and rice for sake and milk for kumis – all across the world! I own a shipping line. I own four beautiful towers in Shanghai. …”
The father turned to the son and said: “Son, now with your own eyes you saw and with your own ears you heard how even morons can make tons of money selling this stuff to public! Don’t touch that devilish bottle again!“
