A mid-level executive was so frustrated at being passed over for promotion year after year that, in frustration, he went to a brain transplant center in the hope of raising his I. Q. 20 points.

After a battery of physical and psychological tests, he was told by the center's director that he was an acceptable candidate. "That's great!" the executive said.

"But I understand that this procedure can be really expensive."

"Yes, sir, it can," the director replied. "An ounce of accountant's brain, for example, costs one thousand dollars; an ounce of an economist's brain costs two thousand; an ounce of a corporate president's is forty-five thousand. An ounce of a politician's brain is seventy-five thousand dollars."

"Seventy-five thousand dollars for an ounce of a politician's brain? Why on earth is that?"

"Do you have any idea," the director asked, "how many politicians we have to kill?"
