So, he followed to chicken down a road and ended up at a farm. He got out of his car and saw that all the chickens had three legs.

Smart Bait

Strategic Game 'Smart is Dumb'

A businessman was talking with his barber, when they both noticed a goofy-looking fellow bouncing down the sidewalk. The barber whispered, "That's Tommy, one of the stupidest kids you'll ever meet. Here, I'll show you."

"Hey Tommy! Come here!" yelled the barber. Tommy came bouncing over "Hi Mr. Williams!" The barber pulled out a rusty dime and a shiny quarter and told Tommy he could keep the one of his choice. Tommy looked long and hard at the dime and quarter and then quickly snapped the dime from the barber's hand. The barber looked at the businessman and said, "See, I told you."

After his haircut, the businessman caught up with Tommy and asked him why he chose the dime.

Tommy looked at him in the eye and said, "If I take the quarter, the game is over."

Correct but Useless

An engineer is in a hot-air balloon. After a few hours he lose track of where he is and descends to get directions. He yells to a jogger, "Hey, can you tell me where I'm at?"

After a few moments the jogger responds, "You're in a hot-air balloon."

The engineer says, "You must be a mathematician."

The jogger, shocked, responds, "yeah, how did you know I was a mathematician?"

"Because, it took you far too long to come up with your answer, it was 100% correct, and it was completely useless."
