To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he showed the first blonde woman a picture for five seconds and then hid it.
“This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” the police officer asked her.
The first blonde answered, “That’s easy, we ought catch him easily because he only has one eye!”
The police officer replied, “Well that is because the picture was taken from the side and shows his profile”.
Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashed the picture to the second blonde woman for five seconds and asked her the same question, “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?”
The second blonde giggled, flipped her hair and said, “Ha! He would be too easy to catch because he only has one ear!”
The police officer angrily responded, “For God’s sake woman! What’s the matter with you two? Of course only one eye and one ear are showing because it’s a picture of his profile! Is that the best answer you can come up with?”
The police officer was extremely frustrated at this point as you may well imagine.
He showed the picture to the third blonde woman and in a very testy voice asked her, “Now think hard before giving me a stupid answer. This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?”
The blonde woman looked at the picture intently for a moment and said, “Hmmmm. the suspect wears contact lenses.”
The police officer was surprised and speechless. “Wow! I can’t believe it! It’s true, the suspect does in fact wear contact lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?”
“That’s easy”, the blonde replied. “He can’t wear regular glasses because he only has one eye and one ear”.
