A married man thought he would give his wife a lovely birthday surprise by buying a bra for her.
He entered a “ladies” shop, not the type of shop that he was known to frequent and was rather intimidated by the sight of all the lingerie around him. He stood there nervously, not knowing where to start, but a pretty young sales girl took charge and walked over to help him.
“What colour bra do you think your wife would like?” the pretty young sales girl asked.
He thought for a minute, then settled for white.
“How much will that cost?” he asked, when the sales girl showed him one of their new range of white bras.
“Twenty-four dollars” she said.
“That’s a bit more expensive than I planned, but ok,” the man thought to himself.
All that remained was the size, but he hadn’t the faintest idea what size his wife’s breasts were.
“Now sir, are they the size a pair of Melons? Coconuts? Grapefruit? Oranges?” the sales girl asked him.
“Oh no,” he said, “they are nothing like that.”
“Come on, sir, think. There must be something your wife’s bust resembles.”
The man thought long and hard and then looked up and said, “Have you ever seen a Spaniel’s ears?”
