At school, the classmate of ten-year-old Johnny tells him that most adults are hiding at least one dark secret, so it’s very easy to blackmail them by saying, "I know the whole truth."

Johnny decides to go home and try it out. At home he informs his mother, "Mom, I know the whole truth."

His mother quickly hands him $20 and says, "Promise me you won’t tell your father!"

Quite pleased, the boy waits for his father to get home from work, and greets him with, "Dad, I know the whole truth!"

The father promptly hands him $40 and says, 'Please don’t say a word to your mother!"

Thrilled with his blackmailing success, the boy is just leaving the house to go to school the next day when he sees the mailman coming up the path towards the front door. He thinks, "Why not?"

So Johnny greets him with, "Hello there! I know the whole truth!"

The mailman immediately drops the mail he is carrying, opens his arms wide, and says, "Then come give your Daddy a great big hug!"
