A kid comes home from school with a writing assignment. He asks his father for help. "Dad, can you tell me the difference between potential and reality?"
His father looks up thoughtfully, and then says, "I`ll display it to you. Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Next, ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt or a million dollars. Then go ask your brother if he would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars. Then come back and tell me what you`ve learned."
The kid is puzzled, but he decides to see if he can figure out what his father means. He asks his mother, "Mom, if someone gave you a million dollars would you sleep with Brad Pitt?"
His mother looks around slyly, and then with a little smile on her face says, "Don`t tell your father, but yes, I would."
Then he goes to his sister`s room and asks her, "Sis, if someone gave you a million dollars, would you sleep with Brad Pitt?" His sister looks up and says, "Omigod!! Definitely!!"
Then he goes to his brother`s room and asks him, "Hey bro, if someone gave you a million bucks, would you sleep with Brad Pitt?" His brother thinks about it and says, "For a million dollars, I suppose I would."
The kid goes back to his father and says, "Dad, I think I`ve figured it out....Potentially, we are sitting on three million bucks, but in reality, we are living with two sluts and a fag."
