boy was walking down the road when he noticed an old geezer
with an unusually small head. The curious boy walked up
to the geezer and said, "Hey mister! Why the heck is
your head so small?"
The old man looked at the boy and replied, "Boy, if
I wasn't so damn old, I'd give you a beating... but since
you remind me of myself at your age, I will tell you."
The boy listened curiously as the geezer explained, "One
day I was fishing on the pier when I got a huge bite...
And, I said to myself, 'Holy shit! I've caught a whale!'"
"No kidding?" pried the boy. The geezer continued,
"But, when I reeled it up, to my surprise, it was a
gorgeous mermaid! Well, she looked at me in tremendous fright
and said she'd grant me one wish if I let her free..."
"And?" interjected the boy. "Well, after
some quick thought, I looked at her and said, 'How 'bout
a little head?'"
