Three blondes were witnesses to a crime, so they went to the police
station to identify the suspect. The police chief said he would show
them a mug shot of someone for thirty seconds, then ask each one for a
description. After showing the photo to the first blonde, he covered
it, then asked her how she would recognize the suspect.
''Easy,'' she replied. ''He only has one eye.''
The chief was stunned. ''He only has one eye because it is a profile
shot! Think about it!'' He repeated the procedure for the second
blonde and again asked how she would recognize him.
''He only has one ear,'' was her answer.
''What is the matter with you people?!? It is a profile shot! You are
seeing him from the side!'' He repeated the procedure for the third
blonde, then said, ''How would you recognize the suspect? Now think
before you give me a stupid answer.''
After viewing the photo, she thought for a minute, then said, ''He's
wearing contact lenses.''
This took the chief by surprise. He looked real hard at the picture
and couldn't tell if the suspect had contacts or not, so he went into
the database and looked at the report. Sure enough, when the mug shot
was taken, he was wearing contact lenses! He went back to her and
asked, ''How could you tell he was wearing contact lenses? Nobody else
here in this precinct saw that!''
''Well,'' she said, ''he can't wear regular glasses with only one eye
and one ear, now, can he?''
