Reels in a customer.
Editor’s note:Do you need something to smile about? Every day, WND selects the best joke offered up by readers and contributors to its Laughlines forum and brings it to you as the WND Joke of the Day. Here is today’s offering:
A woman goes into the Bass Pro Shop to buy a rod and
reel for her grandson’s birthday. She doesn’t know which
one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter.
A clerk is standing there
wearing dark shades. She says, “Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything
about this rod and reel?”
He says, “Ma’am, I’m completely blind; but if you’ll drop it on the
counter, I can tell you everything from the sound it makes.”
She doesn’t believe him but drops it on the counter anyway.
He says, “That’s a six-foot Shakespeare
graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB. test line. It’s a good all around
combination and it’s on sale this week for only $20.00.”
She says, “It’s amazing that you can tell
all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I’ll take it!”
As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor.
“Oh, that sounds like a Master Card,” he says.
She bends down to pick it up and accidentally farts. At first she is
really embarrassed, but then realizes there is no way
the blind clerk could tell it was she who tooted. Being blind, he
wouldn’t know that she was the only person around.
The man rings up the sale and says, “That’ll be $34.50 please.”
The woman is totally confused by this and asks,
“Didn’t you tell me the rod and reel were on sale for $20.00? How did the total come to $34.50?”
He replies, “Yes, Ma’am. The rod and reel
is $20.00, but the duck call is $11.00 and the bear repellent is $3.50.”
