09/28/10 Grif.Net – Finalists

Three finalists all applied for the last available position on the Casper
Police Department. The detective conducting the interview looked at the
three of them and said, “So y’all want to be cops, huh?”

He got up, opened a file drawer, and pulled out a folder. “To be a detective
you have to be able to detect. You must be able to notice things such as
distinguishing features and oddities like scars, hair color, height, etc.”

He stuck the photo in the face of the first candidate and withdrew it after
about two seconds. “Now,” he said, “did you notice any distinguishing
features about this man?”

Immediately the fellow said, “Yes, I did. He has only one eye!”

The detective shook his head and said, “Of course he has only one eye in
this picture!
It’s a profile of his face! You’re dismissed!”

The detective then turned to the second candidate, stuck the photo in her
face for two seconds, pulled it back, and said, “What about you? Notice
anything unusual or outstanding about this man?”

“Yes! He only has one ear!”

The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed, “Didn’t you hear what
I just told the first fellow? This is a profile of the man’s face! Of course
you can only see one ear! You’re excused too!”

The detective turned his attention to the third potential cop and said,
“This is probably a waste of time, but….” He flashed the photo in her
face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, “All right, did you
notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?”

“I sure did. This man wears contact lenses.” The detective frowned, took
another look at the picture, and began looking at some of the papers in the
folder. He looked up at the young lady with a puzzled expression and said,
“You’re absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world
could you tell that by looking at his picture?”

She rolled her eyes and said, “Hellooooooooooooo! With only one eye and one
ear he certainly can’t wear glasses.”
