This story will light up your mood. A senior policeman is interrogating three men who are applying as detectives.
To determine the applicants' detective expertise, the senior policeman tested their skills in recognizing a suspect through a picture.
The policeman showed it to the first man. "This is your suspect," he said. He immediately put away the picture after five seconds.
He then asked him how he would recognize the suspect in the picture. Feeling confident, the first applicant answered that the suspect will be caught fast because he is recognizable, having only one eye.
But his answer didn't impress the senior policeman. The disappointed senior policeman replied that the suspect in the picture only has one eye because only his side profile is shown.
Unsettled, the senior policeman flashed the same picture to the second applicant for five seconds. He then asked how the second applicant would recognize the suspect in the photo.
The second man smiled and, with full confidence, said he would quickly recognize the suspect because he only has one ear. The senior policeman was beyond disappointed.
Angrily, he asked what's the matter with the two men. He said that the man in the photo would only have one eye and one ear because it is his side profile that is shown in the photo.
He asked sarcastically if that was the best answer the two applicants could come up with. In a very irritated voice, the frustrated police officer asked the same question to the third man, again showing him the same picture. He warned the man not to give him a stupid answer.
Surprisingly, the third man said that the suspect will be recognized by the contact lens he is wearing. His interesting answer pleased the senior policeman, who was speechless for a moment.
He immediately checked the suspect's file back in his office. The policeman returned with a smile on his face, confirming his answer.
He commended the third applicant for his good work and asked how he was able to make such an astute observation. The third man replied, "That’s easy. He can’t wear regular glasses because he only has one eye and one ear."
Now, that's an even more disappointing answer! If you enjoyed this joke, check out this other hilarious story about a lady with a black-eye who could not remember how she ended up having one.
