A man was walking down the street when he was accosted by a particularly dirty and shabby-looking homeless man who asked him for a couple of dollars for dinner
The man took out his wallet, extracted ten dollars and said, "If I give you this money, will you buy beer with it instead of dinner?"
"No, No, I had to stop drinking years ago," the homeless man replied.
"Will you use it to go fishing instead of buying food?" the man asked.
"No, I don't waste time fishing," the homeless man said, "I need to spend all my time trying to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on greens fees at a golf course instead of food?" the man asked.
"Are you NUTS!" replied the homeless man. "I haven't played golf in 20 years!"
"Will you spend the money on a woman in the red light district instead of food?" the man asked.
"What? Imagine the diseases I could get for ten lousy bucks? No, I had to give up sex years ago just to keep alive" exclaimed the homeless man.
"Well then ," said the man, "I'm not going to give you the money. Instead, I'm going to take you home for a terrific dinner cooked by my wife."
The homeless man was astounded. "Won't your wife be furious with you for doing that? I know I'm dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."
The man replied, "That's okay. In fact it's important for her to see what a man looks like after he has had to give up beer, fishing, golf, and sex."
