    A young boy went up to his father and asked him, "Dad, what is the
    difference between potentially and realistically?"

    The father thought for a moment, then answered, "Go ask your mother if she
    would sleep with Robert Redford for a million dollars. Then ask your sister
    if she would sleep with Brad Pitt for a million dollars, and then ask your
    brother if he'd sleep with Keanu Reeves for a million dollars. Come back and
    tell me what you learn from that."

    So the boy went to his mother and asked, "Would you sleep with Robert
    Redford for a million dollars?" The mother replied, "Of course I would. I
    wouldn't pass up an opportunity like that."

    The boy then went to his sister and asked, "Would you sleep with Brad Pitt
    for a million dollars?" The girl replied, "Would I? I would just love to do
    that! I would be nuts to pass up that opportunity!"

    The boy then went to his brother and asked, "Would you sleep with Keanu
    Reeves for a million dollars?" "Of course," the brother replied, "Do you
    know how much a million could buy?"

    The boy pondered that for a few days, then went back to his dad.

    His father asked him, "Did you find out the difference between potentially
    and realistically?"

    The boy replied, "Yes, dad. Potentially, we're sitting on three million
    dollars, but realistically, we're living with two sluts and a poof."
