very vain and bald man with a wooden leg gets invited to a Halloween party.
He doesn't know what costume to wear to hide his head and his leg so he writes
to a costume company to explain his problem. A few days later he received
a parcel with the following note:
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." Very truly yours, Acme Costume Co.
man thinks this is terrible because they have just emphasized his wooden leg
and so he writes a letter of complaint. A week goes by and he receives another
parcel and a note, which says:
Sir, 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." Very truly
yours, Acme Costume Co.
the man is really upset since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg
to emphasizing his bald head so again he writes the company another nasty
letter of complaint. The next day he gets a small parcel and a note which
Sir, Please find the enclosed bottle of molasses. Pour the molasses over your
bald head, stick your wooden leg up your posterior and go as a caramel apple."
Very truly yours, Acme Costume Co.
