Everything is Relative

Two different responses to the same exchange:

Kid: Daddy, could I have some money?

Dad: What do you want it for?

Kid: To be rich.

Household A, an upper middle class family living in a suburban neighborhood of a large east coast city: [hilarity]

Household B, the Bush family: Sure. Would $50,000,000 be enough to start? You can get a nice baseball team with that.

Another similarity: in both cases, the kid has the intellectual development of a six-year-old.
