“Every Joke seems to me so beautiful and has such a psychological significance, a profound philosophy.”
– Osho

Little Ernie goes up to his father after school one day. “Dad,” says Ernie, “the teacher started talking about Economics and I didn’t understand a thing.”
“Well,” says his Father thinking for a moment. “Put it this way. In this household, I bring in the money, so I am the capital. Your Mom does the housekeeping, that is management. The maid does the work – she is labor. And your baby brother, well, he is the future.”
Little Ernie wakes up in the middle of the night when his brother screams to have his diapers changed. Ernie goes to his parents’ room to find his mother fast asleep. He then goes to the maid’s room to find his father making love to the maid. So he changes the diapers himself. As he gets back into bed Little Ernie reflects, “Now I understand economics. Management is alseep, capital is screwing labor and the future stinks.”
