Tom and Jim go into business together.
Tom has the money and Jim has the brains.
The night before a huge meeting Jim has a heart attack and dies.
Without Jim, the business is sunk.
In a state of panic, Tom goes to a fortune teller for help.
Tom enters the dimly lit room and sits down across the table from the fortune teller.
There is a sign on the wall with 3 prices… 25, 50 and 75 pounds.
He asks, “What do I get for £25?”
“You can speak to the dead,” replies the fortune teller.
“That’s no good. What about £50?”
“For £50 you speak to your friend and he will reply.”
“That’s it! That’s exactly what I need!” exclaimed Tom. “Just curious, what does 75 quid get you?”
“For £75, you speak to your friend and he will reply.”
“That’s the same thing,” said Tom.
“Yes,” the fortune teller answered, “But this time, he will answer while I drink a glass of water.”
