    A man was walking in the city, when a particularly dirty and shabby-looking
    bum who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner accosted him.

    The man took out his wallet, extracted two dollars and asked, "If I gave you
    this money, will you take it and buy whiskey?"

    “ No, I stopped drinking years ago," the bum said.

    “ Will you use it to gamble?"

    “ I don't gamble. I need everything I can get just to stay alive."

    “ Will you spend the money on greens fees at a golf course?"

    “ Are you NUTS! I haven't played golf in 20 years!"

    The man said, "Well, I'm not going to give you two dollars. Instead, I'm going
    to take you to my home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife." The bum was

    “ Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm
    dirty, and I probably smell pretty bad."

    The man replied, "Hey, man, that's OK! I just want her to see what a man looks
    like who's given up drinking, gambling, and golf!"
