Ian Reid sent this one over..

"My son came to me and said he doesn’t understand the difference between realisim and hypothesis..

I said I would help him understand.

I said “go ask your mum if she would sleep with the postman for £1m”?

He returned and said “she said she would”.

I then said “go ask your sister if she would sleep with the handsome guy at the gym for £1m”.

He returned and said “she said she would”

There is your answer then “hypothetically we are sitting on £2m, but realistically we live with two right slappers”

Have a great weekend and see you on Monday..
