There was a man who had two little boys. In one room, he placed one of the little boys with the finest erector set ever made. He placed the other little boy in a room which was full of horse dung and a shovel. A few hours later the father went back to see how the boys were doing. First, he looked in on the boy with the erector set. The boy had moved to the corner of the room, the erector set lying in front of him. He was sobbing and crying. His father asked him, “What’s the matter?” The little boy said in a whiny voice “I don’t know what to make. The pieces are too heavy. I can’t make anything. It’s too hard.” The father shook his head and decided to look in on the second boy. When he opened the door, much to his surprise, the second little boy was laughing, wildly using the shovel to dig the horse dung out of the pile. The father said, “Son, what are you doing?” His son replied with much enthusiasm, “With this much horse dung, there’s got to be a pony under here somewhere!”
