fancy dress

Post by magog »

A man with a completely bald head and only one leg is invited to a Xmas
fancy dress party. He doesn't know what to wear to hide his head and
his wooden leg, so he writes to a fancy dress company to explain his problem.
A few days later he receives a parcel with a note:

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a Pirate's outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover
your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a Pirate.
The man is offended that the outfit emphasizes his disability, so he writes
a letter of complaint. A week passes and he receives another parcel and note.

Dear Sir,
Sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a monk's habit.
The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really
look the part. The man is really incandescent with rage now, because the
company has gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to drawing attention to his
bald head. So he writes a really strong letter of complaint. A few days later
he gets a very small parcel from the company with the accompanying letter:

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a tin of Golden Syrup. We suggest you pour the tin of
Golden Syrup over your bald head, let it harden, then stick your wooden leg
up your arse and go as a toffee apple.
Men never do evil so completely and cheerfully as when they do it from religious conviction.
