An angel appears at a faculty meeting and tells the dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behavior, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, wisdom or beauty. Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom.

“Done!” says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning. Now, all heads turn toward the dean, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. At length, one of his colleagues whispers, “Say something.”

The dean looks at them and says, “I should have taken the money.”

translation
(中文翻譯)
一位天使出現於教職員會議,告訴系主任由於他大公無私且表現足以當成楷模,上帝將會賜予獎勵,他可選擇大富大貴、智慧無窮,或者青春永駐。那位系主任毫不猶豫便選擇智慧無窮。

天使說:「成了!」隨即出現一陣煙霧與一道閃光,天使便消失無蹤。然後,所有人都把目光轉向系主任,只見主任坐在那裡,四周圍繞著微微的光環。最後,其中一位同事輕聲對他說:「講點話呀。」

系主任看著大家,說道:「我應該選擇大富大貴的。」
