Optician Trouble

194

A woman goes to have her eyes examined. The optician points to a letter near the bottom of the chart. “Can you see that?” he says. The woman shakes her head. He points to a larger letter half way up the chart. “Can you see that?” he asks. The woman shakes her head again, so the optician points to the largest letter at the top of the chart. “Can you see that?” he asks for the third time. Again the woman shakes her head. Exasperated the optician drops his trousers and asks “OK, can you see that?” The woman nods vigorously. “Ah ha!” he exclaims. “I know your problem. You’re cock-eyed!”
