Swindled

Back Next

The newsboy was standing on the corner with a stack of papers, yelling with great enthusiasm:

"Read all about it. Fifty people swindled! Count 'em, fifty people swindled!"

His curiosity aroused, a man walked over, bought a paper, and checked the front page. Finding nothing, he inquired,

"There's nothing in here about fifty people being swindled."

Ignoring him completely the newsboy continued,

"Read all about it. Fifty-one people swindled!"
