The manager of a clothing store returned from his lunch and noticed that one of his clerks had a bandaged hand. He asked what happened, and the clerk answered, “Don’t worry about it, sir. I have great news! I finally sold that hideously ugly suit we’ve been trying to get rid of for so long.”
“That’s great!” the manager said. “I thought we’d never get that pink-and-purple monstrosity out of here, but do tell me, what happened to your hand?”
“Oh,” the clerk replied, “after I sold the suit to the guy, his Seeing Eye dog bit me.”
