How I became rich

A young man asked Morris, an old wealthy man, how he made his money.

Morris took off his glasses and said, “Well, son, it was 1932 during the heart
of the Great Depression. I was down to my last nickel.

“So I invested that nickel in an apple. I spent the entire day polishing the apple
and, at the end of the day, I sold the apple for ten cents.

“The next morning, I invested those ten cents in two apples. I spent the entire
day polishing them and sold them at 5:00 pm for 20 cents. I continued this system
for a month, by the end of which I’d accumulated the sum of $1.60…..”

Then ..

Then ..

“Then my wife’s uncle Bernie died and left us two million dollars.”
