Why study?

I posted this as a comment on ExpectoRants, and thought I'd reproduce it here. This is an old joke I found in a pre-war hardbound compilation of jokes. With the stereotypes then, you can probably guess what the A and F stand for.

A: "Why are you just sleeping and fishing all day? You should be studying?"

F: "Why?"

A: "If you study well, you'll finish school and land a good job."

F: "What for?"

A: "If you land a good job, you'll be able to earn money."

F: "And then what?"

A: "With the money you'll be able to save up so you can retire."

F: "And then...?"

A: "And then you can just sleep and fish all day."
