It’s 2012 and it’s the Olympics in London.
A Scotsman, an Englishman and an American want to get in, but they haven’t got tickets.
The Scotsman picks up a manhole cover, tucks it under his arm and walks to the gate. “MacKenzie, Scotland,” he says, “Discus,” and in he walks.
The Englishman picks up a length of scaffolding and slings it over his shoulder. “Smythe, England,” he says, “Pole vault,” and in he walks.
The American looks around, picks up a roll of barbed wire and tucks it under his arm. “Johnson, America,” he says: “Fencing.”
Sometimes we may think we are smarter than we actually are. The Bible reminds us in Proverbs 1:7. ’The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.’
