Making it big

So there was this person who was in love with a girl who wore contact lenses. Come to think of it, would a modern day Dorothy Parker have said, "Men don't lose their senses... for girls who wear lenses" or not? Anyway, this person was always willing to help out his love in any which way possible. He used to make sure she always had what she needed even before she needed it. Once she ran out of solution for her lenses and he was more than glad to run to the nearby chemist and get it for her. The solution cost Rs. 299, but the girl paid him back Rs. 300. This went on for quite a while. Everytime the guy bought solution for the girl's lenses, he made a Rupee. Over a period of time he amassed quite a wealth. A journalist came to interview him. When asked how he made so much money, the man modestly replied, "I knew someone with contacts."

I know, I know. It's silly. But it's my blog and it's my joke.

Holy cow, man. Great idea. Since Bausch and Lomb's - or is it Bausch's and Lomb's or (Bausch and Lomb)'s - ReNu costs about 285 bucks, I stand to make more than that chap. Now all I need to find is a short-sighted girl ;)

Mint C: Depends upon a host of factors. Usually, when I drink and blog, people like the post. This one is a sober post. :)

eM: You missed an "e" for one he. :)

Varun: Nice ones. I like "aath-shaala".

Senthil: All the best with the search for ssg.

My husband just bought a bunch of "best jokes" books for my daughter. So all we hear these days is various versions of "Knock-Knock" jokes. Want me to post some? ;) I guess you two could sit together for hours and regale each other with your jokes while I and my husband breathe a couple sighs of relief :D

You and gettingthere are welcome to my favourite Knock knock joke:

Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Mehmood who?
Mehmood me nahin hoon batane ke liye.

Knock Knock!
Who's there?
Menaka who?
Menaka na, mehmood me nahin hoon batane ke liye!.

That is the best knock-knock joke I have ever heard, except one about Agarwal, which I cannot relate on a public post. :))
