room.
> Those
> who remained talked about their kids.

> The first guy said, "My son is my pride and joy. He started working at

> a successful company at the bottom of the barrel. He studied Economics

> and Business Administration and soon began to climb the corporate
> ladder and now he's the president of the company. He became so rich
> that he gave his best friend a top of the line Mercedes for his
> birthday."
>
> The second guy said, "Darn, that's terrific! My son is also my pride
> and joy. He started working for a big airline, then went to flight
> school to become a pilot. Eventually he became a partner in the
> company, where he owns the majority of its assets. He's so rich that
> he gave his best friend a brand new jet for his birthday."
>
> The third man said: "Well, that's terrific! My son studied in the best

> universities and became an engineer. Then he started his own
> construction company and is now a multimillionaire. He also gave away
> something very nice and expensive to his best friend for his birthday:

> A 30,000 square foot mansion."
>
> The three friends congratulated each other just as the fourth returned

> from the restroom and asked: "What are all the congratulations for?"
>
> One of the three said: "We were talking about the pride we feel for
> the successes of our sons....What about your son?"
>
> The fourth man replied: "My son is gay and makes a living dancing as a

> stripper at a nightclub."
>
> The three friends said: "What a shame...what a disappointment."
>
> The fourth man replied: "No, I'm not ashamed. Why should I be, He's my

> son and I love him very much. Besides he hasn't done too bad either.
> His birthday was two weeks ago, and he received a beautiful 30,000
> square foot mansion, a brand new jet and a top of the line Mercedes
