One dollar a piece

Two Irish farmers bought a truckload of watermelons, paying one dollar a piece for them.

Then they drove to the market and sold all their melons for the SAME price ($1) they'd paid for them.

After counting their money at the end of the day, they realize they'd ended up with no more money than they'd started with.

"See!" said one."I told you we shoulda got a bigger truck."
