A lady is giving a party for her granddaughter, and has gone all out – caterer, band, and a hired clown.
Just before the party starts, two guys show up looking for a handout.
Feeling sorry for them, the woman tells them that they can get a meal if they will chop some firewood. Gratefully, they head to the rear of the house.
The guests arrive, and all is going well with the children having a wonderful time but the clown has not shown up.
Finally, after being already an hour late, the clown calls to report that he is stuck in traffic, and will probably not make it to the party at all. The woman is very frustrated and frantically tries to think of some solution.
When she happens to look out the window, she sees one of the guys doing cartwheels across the lawn.
She watches in awe as he swings from tree branches, does mid-air flips, and leaps high in the air.
She calls the other guy over and says, “What your friend is doing is absolutely marvellous.
I have never seen such a thing. Do you think your friend would consider repeating this performance for the children at the party? I would pay him $50!”
