Who’s The Smart One

A little boy visited a small a barbershop in his town every day. The barber liked to joke with his customers that the boy always fell for the same trick. He’d put a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other and asked, “Which do you want, son?”

Every time, the boy picked the two quarters. 
“Two is better than one,” he’d say as he left the shop, quarters in hand. 

One day a customer, fresh from his haircut, ran into the boy on the street. “Listen, son,” he said, “you ought to know that a dollar is worth twice as much as two quarters.”

“I know,” the little boy said.

“Then why do you always pick the two quarters?”

“Because the day I pick the dollar, the game is over!”
