There's a little fellow named Junior who hangs out at the neighborhood grocery store, Tommy's. Tom doesn't know what Junior's problem is, but the other boys like to tease him. They say he's "two bricks shy of a load." And to prove it, they sometimes offer Junior his choice between a nickel and a dime. Junior always takes the nickel, they say, because it's bigger.
One day, after Junior grabs the nickel, Tom takes him aside and says, "Junior, those boys are making fun of you. They think you don't know a dime is worth more than a nickel. Are you grabbing the nickel because it's bigger, or what."
Junior replies, "Well if I took the dime, they'd quit doing it."
