When I got home and told my wife that I had bought some pills to make me smarter, she asked, “What’s in those pills anyway?”
“I don’t know. Let me see what the label says.”
It was only then that I learned that I had paid a lot of money for what were essentially caffeine pills.
“Oh, no!” I exclaimed. “I could have gotten the same effect from drinking an extra cup of coffee!”
“See there,” my wife replied. “You are getting smarter already!”
“Why should fools have money in hand to buy wisdom, when they are not able to understand it?”—Proverbs 17:16.
