While not that close, you're definitely on the right track! Someone was definitely told that all they was "something" and wisdom, but that "something" was not "success". Having said that, the word "success" is indeed in the joke.

Well, using your hint above, most small children try to connect the word or concept they don't understand to one that they do. However, they may not pick a very good replacement. (Pontius was the pilot on Mary and Joseph's flight to Egypt, frex.)

Is this what happened here?
