A father took his boy into a toy shop. The boy got away from
his dad and found a statue of a man made of balloons. The boy
looked at it for a minute, and then he drew back his fist and
hit the balloon man just as hard as he could. The man fell
over, and then popped right back up.
The confused boy backed off and looked at him again and then
hit him again as hard as he could. Again the man fell over,
and again he popped right back up.
The boy's father walked around the corner and saw his son hit
that balloon man. The father asked his son, "Why do you think
he comes back up when you hit him and knock him down?"
The boy thought for a minute and said, "I don't know, I guess
it's because he's standing up on the inside."
