Halloween Costume

Halloween Costume

Sam is very self-conscious about his bald head and his wooden leg, so when he receives an invitation to a Halloween Ball, he wants to wear a costume that will hide or minimize both. He dashes off a note to Brooks Brothers, explaining his need and his concerns, and in a few days receives a package with the following note.

"Dear Sir: Enclosed is a pirate costume. The red handkerchief will cover your bald head, and your wooden leg will look like part of the costume."

Sam is furious with their 'solution', and returns the parcel, saying he is trying to HIDE his peg leg...not call attention to it.

The next week, he receives a second package and a note:

"Dear Sir: We apologize if we appeared insensitive to your concern. 
Enclosed is a monk's habit. The long robe will hide your leg, and your bald head will look to be part of your costume."

Enraged, Sam returns the costume with a nasty note, saying they are idiots for calling attention to his bald head.

The following day, he receives a small parcel by courier with a note which reads:

"Dear Sir: Enclosed is a jar of caramel. Pour it over your bald head, 
stick your peg leg up your ass, and go as a candy apple."

What's the matter with you?

A woman went to her doctor’s office. She was seen by one of the new doctors, but after about 4 minutes in the examination room, she burst out screaming and ran down the hall. An older doctor stopped her and asked what the problem was, and she explained. He had her sit down and relax in another room. The older doctor marched back to the first and demanded, “What’s the matter with you? Mrs. Terry is 63 years old, she has four grown children and seven grandchildren, and you told her she was pregnant?” The new doctor smiled smugly as he continued to write on his clipboard. “Cured her hiccups though, didn’t it?”
