One day a curious little boy asked his father what the difference was\nbetween 'potentially' and 'realistically'.\nHis father thought for a moment and then said: "To learn the difference,\nyou must first go to your mother and ask her whether she would sleep with\nRichard Gere for £1 million. Then go and ask your older sister whether she\nwould sleep with Brad Pitt for £1 million. Think about the answers, and then\ntell me what you have found."\nSo the little boy went to his mother and ask "Mummy, would you sleep with\nRichard Gere for £1 million?"\nWithout hesitation his mother replied "Well, yes dear. As much as I love\nyour father, I'd be mad to pass up an opportunity like that!"\nThe little boy went upstairs to his older sister and asked "Chardonnay,\nwould you sleep with Brad Pitt for £1 million?"\n"Well, like, of course!!" replied the sister. "I'd have to be, like, stupid\nnot to, like, take an offer like that. Like."\nSo the little boy went away to think about the answers he had got, and then\nlater that day went back to his father.\n"So, Jimmy, did you learn the difference between potentially and\nrealistically?" asked his father.\n"Yes," said little Jimmy.\n"Potentially, we're sitting on £2 million, but realistically we're living\nwith a couple of slappers".
