a funny

a man goes into a tailors shop one morning, and tells the tailor he needs a suit for a wedding, and he needs it for that afternoon. the tailor tells him that is very short notice, but he will do what he can. he does all his measuring, and tells the man to come back in a few hours to try it on. when the man returns, and tries on the suit, it is terrible – makes him look all misshapen – bent over, legs and arms going every which way, one sleeve too short, the other too long – just terrible. the tailor says, “so, we’ll take it in here, let it out there, you’ll see.” (imagine a classic old jewish tailor voice),  but the man says he doesn’t have time, and he’ll have to take it as is. he stumbles out of the shop with the suit on, and as he goes down the street he passes two old ladies who watch him go by. one says, “look at that poor man, all crippled like that.” and the other says, “yes, but doen’t his suit fit nicely?”

  1. Reminds me of the guy that goes to the barber and asks him to cut his hair short on one side, long on the other, make his bangs uneven, and shave a bald spot on top of his head. The barber says he couldn’t possibly do that. The guy says why not, you did it last week!
