The father looked at the money for a moment and then said, "Son, you know I've always been careful with what little money we had. I didn't spend it on whiskey or women or frivolous things. In fact, I couldn't even afford a license to legally marry your Ma."

"Pa!" the son exclaims, "Do you know what that makes me?"

"Sure do," said the old guy fingering the fifty-dollar bill. "And a damn cheap one, too."
