|Three blondes were all applying for the last available position on the
Texas Highway Patrol. The detective conducting the interview
looked at the three of them and said, “So y’all want to be cops,
huh?”The blondes all nodded.
The detective got up, opened a file drawer, and pulled out a folder.
Sitting back down, he opened it, pulled out a picture, and said,
“To be a detective, you have to be able to detect. You must be able
to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities like scars
and so forth.”
So he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it
after about two seconds. “Now,” he said, “did you notice any distinguishing
features about this man?”
The blonde immediately said, “Yes, I did. He has only one eye!”
The detective shook his head and said, “Of course he
has only one eye in this picture! It’s a side profile of
his face! You’re dismissed!”
The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office.
The detective then turned to the second blonde, stuck
the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back,
and said,”What about you? Notice anything unusual or
Outstanding about this man?”
“Yes! He only has one ear!”
The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed,
“Didn’t you hear what I just told the other lady? This
is side picture profile of the man’s face! Of course you
can only see one ear! You’re excused too!”
The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turned his attention to the third and last
blonde and said, “This is probably a waste of time,
He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds
and withdrew it, saying, “All right, did you notice
anything distinguishing or unusual features about this man?”
The blonde said, “I sure did. This man wears contact lenses.”
The detective frowned, took another look at the picture, and began looking at
some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled
expression and said, “You’re absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts!
How in the world could you tell that by looking at his picture?”
The blonde rolled her eyes and said, “Well, Hellooooooooo!
With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can’t wear glasses.”
