People often talk about a person's intelligence and either praise them or mock them. Here's a hilarious joke about a barber who claimed to know the world's dumbest kid.


A man was waiting for his turn for a haircut at the barber's shop. After a while of waiting, the barber called him over. The man told him about how he wants his hair, and the barber started his work.

After a couple of minutes, a kid, about 12 walked in. The barber noticed the kid and whispered in the man's ear. "He's the dumbest kid in the world."

The man is shocked to hear the barber's remark and asks why he thought so. The barber then smiled and said, "Forget why I think that. I'll prove it."

The barber went behind the counter and brought out two quarters and a dollar. He put the dollar in one hand and the quarters in another. Then, he called the boy and asked him to choose. 


"Which do you want, son?" the barber asked the boy. The boy instantly chose the quarters and skipped his way out of the store. The barber chuckled, put the dollar back, and said, "That kid never learns."


The barber explained how the boy came to his store often, and he played the same game most of the time. "No matter how many times I do it, that kid always chooses the quarters," he said.

The barber explained how the boy thought the quarters were more valuable because there were two metal coins. The man was feeling bad for the boy and the barber's actions. 

On his way back home, the man noticed the same boy outside a sweets shop. He had an ice-cream in one hand and a small pouch of gummy bears.

The man called the boy over and asked if he recognized him from anywhere. "You were getting a haircut at the local barber's about an hour ago," said the boy. 

The man was surprised that the boy had noticed someone who didn't even talk to him. He decided to tell him about the quarter-dollar game the barber was playing with him. 


The kid cachinnated at the man's explanation. He looked up at the man and said, "Thank you for your concern, sir, but I'm never taking the dollar."

The man was surprised to hear that, and he asked why not. The boy gave him a wink and said, "Because the day I take the dollar, I lose. The game's over."
