JOKE

THERE WAS A MAN WHO HAD A WOODEN EYE. BECAUSE OF HIS WOODEN EYE,
HE WAS NOT TOO CONFIDENT. ONE NIGHT HIS FRIENDS COAXED HIM TO COME
TO A DANCE WITH THEM. OVER IN THE CORNER HE SAW A GIRL SITTING.
HE COULD SEE THAT SHE WAS NOT TOO PRETTY AND SHE HAD A HARELIP.
WELL, HE FIGURED HE WAS NO HOTSHOT HIMSELF WITH HIS WOODEN EYE.
SO HE WENT OVER AND ASKED HER, "WOULD YOU CARE TO DANCE?" --
"WOULD I? WOULD I?" SHE SHOUTED. "HARELIP, HARELIP"
HE SHOUTED BACK.
