Thoughtful Gifts


Beware the G-Man
Political Access
31 Mar 2002
Four brothers left home for college, and they became successful doctors and lawyers and prospered.
Some years later, they chatted after having dinner together.
They discussed the gifts that they were able to give to their elderly mother who lived far away in another city.

The first said, "I had a big house built for Mama."

The second said, "I had a hundred thousand dollar
theatre built in the house."

The third said, "I had my Mercedes dealer deliver her
an SL600."

The fourth said, "Listen to this. You know how Mama
loved reading the Bible and you know she can't read it
anymore because she can't see very well. I met this
priest who told me about a parrot that can recite the
entire Bible. It took twenty priests 12 years to teach
him. I had to pledge to contribute $100,000 a year for
twenty years to the church, but it was worth it.
Mama just has to name the chapter and verse and the
parrot will recite it."

The other brothers were impressed.

After the holidays Mom sent out her Thank You notes.

She wrote:

"Milton, the house you built is so huge. I live in
only one room, but I have to clean the whole house.
Thanks anyway."

"Marvin, I am too old to travel. I stay home; I have
my groceries delivered, so I never use the Mercedes.
The thought was good. Thanks."

"Michael, you give me an expensive theatre with Dolby
sound, it could hold 50 people, but all my friends are dead,
I've lost my hearing and I'm nearly blind. I'll never use it.
Thank you for the gesture just the same."

"Dearest Melvin, you were the only son to have the
good sense to give a little thought to your gift.
The chicken was delicious. Thank you."

:eek: :p
