The tightrope walker using a pole crossed the width of the falls effortlessly. When he reached the other side, a huge crowd awaited him. Emphatic about his accomplishments the crowd gave praise to the expert sky walker. He didn't disappoint by attempting to return to the other side suing the same wire.....only this time carrying a large wheelbarrow with about 175 pounds of bricks.
Playing to the crowd, he asked them all, "Do you think I can make it across pushing this wheelbarrow?"
Without hesitation, the crowd enthusiastically said yes.
Then approached a man who was as supportive as any. The tightrope walker asked him, "You sir, do you believe I can make it across with this wheelbarrow?"
The man was taken back but responded, "Ah yeah, sure I think you can make it."
"I didn't ask you if you think I can make it across,” retorted the high wire artist. "I asked if you believe I can make it across?"
Surprised with the clarification, the man said, “Well, yes. I believe you can make it across."
The Tightrope Walker asked the man. "How much do you weigh?"
"Ah...About a buck-eighty. Why?"
With that, the tightrope walker grabbed the wheelbarrow, dumped out all of the bricks, looked into the man's eyes and said...
“GET IN THE WHEELBARROW!”
