Correct English is Important

A homeless man comes up to the front door of a neat looking farmhouse and raps gently on the door.

When the farm owner answers, the homeless man asks him, "Please, sir, could you give me something to eat? I haven't had a good meal in several days."

The farmer says, "I've made a fortune during my lifetime by supplying food for other people. I've never given anything away for nothing. However, if you go around the back, you will see a gallon of paint and a clean paint brush. If you paint my porch, I will give you a good meal and a place to sleep for the night."

So the homeless man goes around to the back and after a few hours he knocks on the door. The owner says, "Finished? That's Good. Come in and sit down. The cook has your meal prepared.

The homeless man says, "Thank you very much. I really need this meal.

The homeless man continues: "there's something that I think you should know. It's not a Porsche you got out there in the back. It's a BMW."
