The Entrepreneurial Beggar
An old Jewish beggar was out on the street in New York City with his tin cup.
"Please, sir," he pleaded to a passerby, "could you spare 73 cents for a cup of coffee and some pie?"
The man asked, "Where do you get coffee and pie for 73 cents in New York? It costs a minimum of a dollar!"
The beggar replied, "So who buys retail?"
