Do you know this tale?

This is the story of a stingy who receives a guest. Once the guest went inside, the stingy called his son to fetch food.
– He told his son: Come on son ! we have a very important guest and you have to go buy a pound of the best quality meat for cooking.
– And the child left for a while then came back empty-handed, he did not bring anything.
– His father asked him: Where’s the meat?
– Child: I went to the butcher, I said: Give me your best meat.
– The butcher said: I will give you a good meat like butter.
– I said: If so, why not buy butter instead of meat.
– I went to the grocery store. I said: Give me the best of your butter.
– The grocer says: I’ll give you a butter that looks like honey.
– I said: If so, it’s better to buy honey.
– I went to the seller of honey, I said: Give me your best honey.
– The man says: I’ll give you a honey which is lighter than the water source.
– I thought: if so, we have water at home and it is better to save money.
– So I’m back without having bought anything.
– Father: I am very proud of you son, you’re great to think in this way. But you failed to pay attention to an important point : you have run all the stores and you must have damaged your shoes.
– The child replied: No father, I put the guest’s shoes.

    Sorry, but your joke is hard to understand. Here’s one for you:

    One day my mother was out and my dad was looking after me.

    I was maybe 2 1/2 years old and had just recovered from a bad cold. Someone had given me a little tea set as a get-well gift and it was one of my favorite toys.

    Dad was in the living room engrossed in the evening news when I brought Daddy a little cup of "tea," which was just water. After several cups of tea and lots of praise for such good tea, my mom came home.

    Dad made her wait in the living room to watch me bring him a cup of tea. ("It’s just the cutest thing!") My mom waited and sure enough, I came down the hall with a cup of tea for Daddy. She watched him drink it, then said (as only a mother would)…"Did it ever occur to you that the only place she can reach to get water is from the toilet?"
