Smith was very close to his son, Johnny. They used to go everywhere together including looking for Chicken (slang for prostitute).
One day, Johnny decided to go overseas for higher studies.
Smith was very supportive, and before his son left, he told him, “We cannot look for chicken together for the next few years.
However, if you need to look for chicken, go ahead and I will pay for it. But please state the expense as ‘Shooting Bird’ so that your mother will not suspect.”
So Johnny left, and after a month, Smith received the bill from him: Shooting bird – $200).
Subsequently, and for the next few months, the bill for shooting bird is more than $2000.
Well, Smith could not tolerate this, so he wrote to his son.
“Son, you have been shooting too expensive bird, try some cheaper one”.
A month later, Smith received another bill from Johnny. On it he had written:
Shooting Bird – $50
Rifle Repair – $5000
