A blind man walks into a hardware store to buy a hammer. There are hammers hanging behind the front desk, but obviously the blind man isn't able to see them. And yet a few minutes later, he happily walks out of the store, having just purchased a new hammer.
How did he do it?
He walks up the the front desk where the clerk is working and says "I'd like to buy a hammer."
Of no use to one, yet absolute bliss to two.
The small boy gets it for nothing.
The young man has to lie or work for it.
The old man has to buy it.
The baby's right, the lover's privilege, the hypocrite's mask.
To the young girl, faith;
To the married woman, hope;
To the old maid, charity.
What am I?
Mike was watching TV and all of a sudden he leaps to his feet and says, "That's Simon", pointing at someone who was at the screen.
Then his brother Mark comes in, looks at his brother, then looks back at the TV and says, "So it is."
How do they know Simon if they hadn't seen him before, no pictures, nothing?
