Ben Franklin's Whistle

When Benjamin Franklin was a boy, he traded all his money for a wooden whistle.  He was excited and pleased with his purchase, until he brought it home and learned from his siblings that it was worth much less than what he had paid.  Any time since then, he used the term "paid too much for his whistle" any time someone was spending their time, money, or effort on something that was worthless.  Are we paying too much for our whistle?

Thank you Sage and Carson for playing dress-up and posing for my pictures, and for Anya, who always comes through with awesome costumes!
