This week, a classic …A very handsome man gets into a terrible car accident.The doctors save his life, but he loses one eye. Before a nice glass one can be fitted, he is temporarily given a wooden eye.The man becomes very depressed because of his eye loss and sits at home, moping around.Eventually his friends come over and drag him out to a bar to try and cheer him up. While at the bar, he’s still just sitting there looking depressed, not really talking. One of his friends suggests he try to talk to a cute girl who seems alone at the bar.“No, she’ll never go for a man with a wooden eye,” the man says.“Okay, how about that girl over there?” His friend responds. “She has a really big nose.”The man walks over to the girl and asks, “Would you like to dance?”Very excited, and shocked, to be asked to dance by such an attractive man, the woman responds:“Would, I?! Would I?!”To which the man quickly responds “Big nose! Big nose!”
