Two fathers at the club were discussing the daughters in their respective families. "What do you think," said one. "Should I send my daughter to college or not?" "Well, I'll tell you my experience. It may help you to decide. It cost me six thousand dollars a year to send Penelope to college, and it took her four years to capture a husband. I spent three hundred to send Alice to the beach for three weeks, and she came home married. I recommend the beach."
