    Male Logic?

    Male Logic - Critical Thinking At Its Best!

    Woman: Do you drink beer?

    Man: Yes

    Woman: How many beers a day?

    Man: Usually about 3

    Woman: How much do you pay per beer?

    Man: $5.00 which includes a tip

    (This is where it gets scary !)

    Woman: And how long have you been drinking?

    Man: About 20 years, I suppose

    Woman:

    So a beer costs $5 and you have 3 beers a day which puts your
    spending each month at $450. In one year, it would be approximately $5,400. correct?

    Man: Correct

    Woman:

    If in 1 year you spend $5400, not accounting for inflation, the past
    20 years puts your spending at $108,000, correct?

    Man: Correct

    Woman:

    Do you know that if you didn't drink so much beer, that money could have been put in a step-up interest savings account and after accounting for compound interest for the past 20 years, you could have now bought a Ferrari?

    Man: Do you drink beer?

    Woman: No

    Man: Where's your Ferrari?

    Reminds me of a (very) old joke.

    Man: I wish I could afford a hippopotamus
    Friend:What on earth do you want a hippopotamus for?
    M: I don't want a hippopotamus, I just wish I could afford one.
    (I saw that as a child in a comic, either Beano or Dandy).

    Other one
    Man:I think I'll take up smoking
    Friend:But you hate cigarette smoke!
    M:Then I could give it up and save all that money!

    The latter one shows the same flawed logic of both the man and woman in the OP's post!

    I'll get my coat!
