A guy went to a very exclusive restaurant dressed in a clown suit. The whole regalia: big floppy shoes, a red ball on his nose, Bozo-type hair, the whole schtick.
The Maitre D’ said, “I’m sorry, sir, I can’t let you in dressed like that. Our dress code is very strict. Gentlemen must wear a jacket and a tie.”
The guy said, “Please, sir, let me explain. I am a prominent business man in town here. My name is Rich Bigbucks. I am the Chief Executive Officer of Greed, Inc. I am dressed like this because I was one of the volunteers that went to the Children’s Hospital today to help cheer up the sick and injured children. We do this every month or so.”
The Maitre D’ said, “Well, sir, it is highly irregular. But having listened to the circumstances, I will let you in. But a warning: don’t try anything funny!”
