Donald McPherson, a very tight man, was looking for a gift for a friend. Everything was too expensive except for a glass that was broken, which he could buy for almost nothing. He asked the store to send it, hoping his friend would think it had been broken in transit. In due time, he received a reply. ” Thanks for the vase.” it read. ” It was thoughtful of you to wrap each piece separately.”

Definition of a Welshman – someone who can buy something from a Jew and sell it at a profit to a Scotsman.
A Welshman would have sent one piece of the vase for Christmas and the other for his friend’s birthday. But if the vase was shattered – well that would answer the question of presents for years.
One Christmas I gave my mother a text book on Thermodynamics – pure coincidence I was reading Engineering at University – she was kind enough to lend the book to me, she thought “it would help me with my studies”.
