Critical Thinking (Humor)

Woman: Do you drink beer?
Man: Yes.

Woman: How many beers a day?
Man: Usually about 3.

Woman: How much do you pay for each beer?
Man: $5.00, which includes a tip.

Woman: And how long have you been drinking?
Man: About 20 years, I suppose.

Woman: So if a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day, that's $15 a day you spend on beer, or $450 per month. In one year, it would be approximately $5400. Correct?
Man: Correct.

Woman: If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past 20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?
Man: Correct.

Woman: Do you know that if you didn't drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

Man: Do you drink beer?
Woman: No.
Man: Where's your Ferrari?
