Well, a bald man with a wooden leg once got invited to a Halloween party. He didn’t have a clue what costume to wear to hide his head and his leg, and so he wrote to a fancy dress costume company to explain his problem in the hopes that they could help him come up with some ideas.

A few days later, the man received a parcel from the fancy dress costume company with the following note enclosed:

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a pirate’s outfit.
The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald-head, and with your wooden leg, you will look just right as a pirate.
Very truly yours,
Acme Costume Co.

The man thinks this is terrible, because they have emphasized his wooden leg, and so he writes a letter of complaint and mails it off to the company.

A week goes by and he receives another parcel and a note, which says:

Dear Sir,
Please find enclosed a monk’s costume.
The long robe will cover your wooden leg, and with your bald-head, you will really look the part.
Very truly yours,
Acme Costume Co.

Well, now the man is really upset, since they have gone from emphasizing his wooden leg to emphasizing his bald-head.

So, again he writes another nasty letter of complaint to the fancy dress costume company .

The next day he gets a small parcel and a note, which reads:

Dear Sir,
We have TRIED our very BEST.
Please find enclosed a bottle of molasses and  a bag of crushed nuts.
Pour the molasses over your bald-head, pat on the crushed nuts, stick your wooden leg up your butt and go as a caramel apple.
Very truly yours,
Acme Costume Co.
