There was this man who was in a horrible accident, and was
injured. But the only permanent damage he suffered was the
amputation of both of his ears. As a result of this "unusual"
handicap, he was very self-conscious.
Because of the accident, he received a large sum of money from the
insurance company. It was always his dream to own his own business, so
he decided with all this money he had, he now had the means to
own a business.
So he went out and purchased a small, but expanding computer firm.
He realized, however, that he had no business knowledge at all. So he
decided that he would have to hire someone to run the business.
He picked out three top candidates, and interviewed each of them. The
first interview went really well. He really liked this guy. His last
question for this first candidate was "Do you notice anything unusual
The candidate said, "Now that you mention it, you have no ears."
The man got really upset and threw the guy out.
The second interview went even better than the first. This candidate
much better than the first. Again, to conclude the interview, the man
asked the same question again, "Do you notice anything unusual
This candidate also noticed, "Yes, you have no ears."
The man was really upset again, and threw the second candidate out.
Then he had the third interview. The third candidate was even better
than the second, the best out of all of them. Almost certain that he
wanted to hire this guy, the man once again asked, "Do you notice
anything unusual about me?"
The candidate replied "Yeah, you're wearing contact lenses."
Surprised, the man then asked, "Wow! That's quite perceptive of you!
How could you tell?"
The guy burst out laughing and said, "Well, You can't wear glasses if
don't have any %$#@!*& ears!"
