Potentially and realistically

The difference between potentially and realistically

A young boy went up to his father and asked him, “Dad, what is the difference between potentially and realistically?”

The father thought for a moment, then answered, “Go ask your mother if she would sleep with Robert Redford for a million dollars. Then ask your sister if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and ask your brother if he’d sleep with Tom Cruise for a million dollars. Come back and tell me what you learn from that.

So the boy went to his mother and asked, “Would you sleep with Robert Redford for a million dollars?” The mother replied, “Of course I would! We could really use that money to fix up the house and send you kids to a great college!”

The boy then went to his sister and asked, “Would you sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars?” The girl replied, “Oh my God! I LOVE Brad Pitt! I would sleep with him in a heartbeat, are you nuts?!?!?”

The boy then went to his brother and asked, “Would you sleep with Tom Cruise for a million dollars?” “Of course,” the brother replied. “Do you know how much a million could buy?”

The boy pondered that for a few days, then went back to his dad. His father asked him, “Did you find out the difference between potentially and realistically?” The boy replied, “Yes, sir. Potentially, we’re sitting on three million dollars, but realistically, we’re living with two sluts and a fag.”
