    A woman goes into Wally world to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get, so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter where a clerk wearing dark sunglasses is standing.

    She says, "Excuse me, sir. Can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?"

    He says, "Ma'am, I'm completely blind, but-- if you'll drop it on the counter, I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."

    She doesn't believe him but drops it on the counter anyway.

    He says, "That's a 6-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with a Zebco 404 reel and 10-LB test line. It's a good all around combination, and it's on sale this week for only $20.00."

    She says, "It's amazing that you can tell all that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter. I'll take it!"

    As she opens her purse, her credit card drops on the floor. "Oh, that sounds like a Master Card," he says.

    Amazed, she bends down to pick it up but accidentally 'breaks wind' as she does. At first she is embarrassed, but then realizes there is no way the blind clerk could tell who it was.

    The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please.

    The woman, confused, demands, "Didn't you tell me it was on sale for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?"

    He responds, "Why yes, Ma'am, I did. The rod and reel is $20.00, but the Duck Call is $11.00 and the Catfish Bait is $3.50."

    (I'll be he did that on purpose...)
