The ad in the tabloid newspaper said, "Make a million dollars playing the stock market."
"Honey, look at this," a wife said to her husband. "This ad says you can make a million dollars playing the stock market. I've always wanted to learn how to play the stock market."
"I don't know, dear," he replied. "It sounds like a get-rich-quick scheme."
"The information kit is only $9.95," the wife said. "I'm going to send for it." She filled out the form and mailed it, along with a check.
A few days later the information kit came in the mail. "Make One Million Dollars Playing the Stock Market," the envelope read.
The wife opened it and began reading the instructions. The first instruction: Start with two million dollars.
