Suit Joke

Author Unknown

A man goes to a tailor to try on a new custom-made suit. The first thing he notices is that the arms are too long.

``No problem,'' says the tailor. ``Just bend them at the elbow and hold them out in front of you. See, now it's fine.''

``But the collar is up around my ears!''

``It's nothing. Just hunch your back up a little... No, a little more... That's it.''

``But I'm stepping on my cuffs!'' the man cries in desperation.

``Nu, bend you knees a little to take up the slack. There you go. Look in the mirror--the suit fits perfectly.''

So, twisted like a pretzel, the man lurches out onto the street. Reba and Florence see him go by.

``Oh, look,'' says Reba, ``that poor man!''

``Yes,'' says Florence, ``but what a beautiful suit.''
