Wisdom for Sale

Caption reads: "I'd like a million dollars worth of wisdom, please. Can you just bill me?"

I look at this cartoon in two ways. On one hand, wisdom is valuable. It is rare and expensive but worth the price. I've seen plenty of smart people without much wisdom.

On the other hand, if you bill someone for an outrageous sum, is it wise? We'll leave that up to the store clerk to find out.

It all depends on whether or not the customer is paying with cash or with a credit card. Of course, if with a credit card that gives frequent flyer miles, maybe it would be wise to purchase wisdom on credit!
