Heikki has a teenage son, Matti, and Heikki thought it was time that Matti should be giving some thought to choosing a profession. But Matti, like many people of his age, didn't seem concerned.

While Matti was away, Heikki decided to do an experiment. Heikki placed four objects on a table in Matti's room: a Bible, a silver dollar, a bottle of booze, and a "Playboy" magazine. Heikki figured that if Matti picked up the Bible, he is going to be a preacher; if he picks up the dollar, he's going to be a business man; if he picks up the bottle of booze, he is going to be a drunken bum; and if he picks up the "Playboy," he is going to be a skirt-chasing womanizer.

Matti sees the objects on the table. He picks up the Bible and puts it under his arm, he picks up the silver dollar and puts it in his pocket, he opens up the bottle of booze and takes a big swig while he admires the centerfold in the ''Playboy" magazine. Upon seeing this, Heikki gasps, "Good grief, the boy is going to run for Congress."
