THE WHOLE TRUTH

AT SCHOOL, a boy is told by a classmate that most adults are hiding at least one dark secret, which makes it very easy to blackmail them by saying: “I know the whole truth.”

So the boy decides to try it out. He goes home and says to his mother: “I know the whole truth.”

His mother quickly hands him a $50 note and says: “Just don’t tell your father.”

The boy can’t believe it worked! So he then waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with: “I know the whole truth.” The father also promptly slips him a $50 note and says: “Please don’t say a word to your mother.”

The next day, the boy arrives home from school and sees the mailman at his front door. Once again, the boy greets him by saying: “I know the whole truth.”

The mailman drops the mail, opens his arms and says: “Then come give your father a big hug!”
