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 police officer, you have to be able to detect. You must be able to
notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities such as
scars and so forth.”
So saying, 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 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 a 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, but……” 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 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, Helloooo! With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can’t wear glasses.”

Scribd is a free online library where anyone can upload. Use our embeddable
PDF player to publish and view documents right in your web browser.
I came upon this site today. No need to sign up too!
I have uploaded a couple of docs myself. It seems too good to be real. Very very fast. Easy on the eyes and it even allows documents to be downloaded as MP3 files.
I'm sure they will be torn down for copyright violations very soon. But while it lasts, its a great site...
Yahoo! OurCity - Chennai News, Events, Blogs, Photos & a lot more
Our City is a dynamic representation of content created by you and everyone else.
This started a couple of months back with just Bangalore and now has expanded to 16 cities. I love the new maps feature, where I can zoom into street level!
The other thing I find very useful is the local time on the top Right. Reminds me not to call @ odd hours!
The last time I left for India, I used to ask my siblings about local events - like carnatic music concerts - now I can find them listed right here.

Over the weekend, we attended a wedding. It was my first cousin's son. Amazingly, I have not seen or heard from my cousin for the last 15 yrs, who lives in Washigton DC... Anyways, I was very happy to be a part of this wonderful celebration. Manu and Archana are the couple and I wish them the very best!
