The teacher asked three boys to write an essay. She said, "Write on what
you would do if you had a million dollars, and bring it in tomorrow."
So the next day the three little boys came in. She said to the first boy,
"Percy, this is a nice essay on what you'd do with a million dollars. You
said you'd give your mother a new home, your father a new car, send your
sister to college--I think that's wonderful." And she said to the second
boy, "I'm proud of you, David. You wrote a nice essay on what you'd do with
a million dollars. You'd buy your mother a Cadillac and a mink coat ..."
She looked at the paper of the third boy. She said, "Donny, you're paper
has nothing on it!" He said, "That's what I'd do with a million dollars.
