Con-vincing kid!

A youngster stood an a cold and blustery street corner in mid-December with a stack of newspapers shouting: “Extra! Extra! Christmas scam claims 32 victims! Read all about it!”

A passerby stopped to purchase a copy, and stood to one side as he paged through the entire paper. He turned to the newsboy and said, “Hey, I can’t find anything in here about a scam.”

“Extra! Extra!” shouted the youngster, ignoring the passerby. “Christmas scam claims 33 victims!”
