    Muskogee Ok.
    At school, a boy is told by a classmate that most adults
    are hiding at least one dark secret, and that this makes it
    very easy to blackmail them by saying, “I know the whole
    truth” -- even when you don't know anything.
    The boy decides to go home and try it out. As he is greeted
    by his mother at the front door he says, “I know the whole
    truth.” His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, “Just
    don't tell your father.”

    Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home
    from work, and greets him with, “I know the whole truth.”
    The father promptly hands him $40 and says, “Please don't
    say a word to your mother.”

    Very pleased, the boy is on his way to school the next day,
    when he sees the mailman at his front door. The boy greets
    him by saying, “I know the whole truth.” The mailman drops
    the mail, opens his arms and says, “Then come give your
    FATHER a big hug.”
