33. Let's assume he really is worth $10B, which we know he isn't

Which would you rather do:

1. Spend a million dollars of your own on legal fees
2. Spend someone else's million dollars on legal fees.

One day, when Trump was between wives, he went to a restaurant that claimed to serve "Hamberders Just Like Your Mother Used To Make." He got one, ate it, liked it, and tipped the server three cents.

The server stopped him as he was going out the door. "Mr. Trump," she said, "I can tell everything about a person by looking at their tips. Would you like me to tell you everything about you?"

"Why yes, of course I would."

"First, I see that you tipped three pennies. Three is a very lucky number so you must be a very lucky man. Would you say that's accurate?"
"I am. Please continue."

"Next, I notice that all these pennies are new and shiny, which means you are a man of the modern era, never wanting to deal with ancient things. We still good?"
"We are. This is interesting."

"I notice all three of them were laid on the table heads up and in a nice straight line, so we know you are smart and meticulous."
"Very much so, yes."

"The first penny shows that you are a thrifty man."
"I am. What about the second?"

"The second shows that you are a bachelor."
"Yes, for now. And about the third?"

"It says your father was a bachelor too, you cheap bastard."
