A man with a winking problem is applying for a position as a sales representative for a large firm. The interviewer looks over his papers and says, This is phenomenal. You’ve graduated from the best schools; your recommendations are wonderful, and your experience is unparalleled. Normally, we’d hire you without a second thought. However, a sales representative has a highly visible position, and we’re afraid that your constant winking will scare off potential customers. I’m sorry….we can’t hire you.
But wait, he said. If I take two aspirin, I’ll stop winking!
Really? Great! Show me!
So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of condoms: red condoms, blue condoms, ribbed condoms, flavored condoms; finally, at the bottom, he finds a packet of aspirin. He tears it open, swallows the pills, and stops winking.
Well, said the interviewer, that’s all well and good, but this is a respectable company, and we will not have our employees womanizing all over the country!
Womanizing? What do you mean? I’m a happily married man!
Well then, how do you explain all these condoms?
Oh, that, he sighed. Have you ever walked into a pharmacy, winking, and asked for aspirin?
