One afternoon, a wealthy lawyer was riding in his limousine when he saw two men along the roadside eating grass. Disturbed, he ordered his driver to stop, and he got out to investigate.
He asked one man, "Why are you eating grass?"
"We don't have money for food," the poor man replied.
"Well, then," the lawyer said, "you can come with me to my house."
"But sir," the man answered. "I have a wife and two children with me."
"Bring them along," the lawyer replied, and turning to the second man he added, "You come with us also."
In a pitiful voice the second man said, "But sir, I have a wife and six children with me!"
The lawyer extended his invitation to them as well.
They all entered the car, which was no easy task, even a car as large as the
limousine. Once underway, one of the poor fellows turned to the lawyer and said, "Sir, you are too kind. Thank you for taking all of us with you."
The lawyer replied, "Glad to do it. You'll love my place, the grass is almost a foot high."
