A woman goes into Wal-Mart to buy a rod and reel for her grandson's birthday. She doesn't know which one to get so she just grabs one and goes over to the counter. A salesman is standing there with dark shades on.

She says, "Excuse me sir, can you tell me anything about this rod and reel?" He says, "Ma'am I'm completely blind, but if you'll drop it on the counter I can tell you everything you need to know about it from the sound it makes."

She doesn't believe him, but drops it on the counter anyway. He says, "That's a six-foot Shakespeare graphite rod with Zebco 404 reel and 10-pound test line. It's a good all around combination and it's on sale this week for only $20.00. "She says, "It's amazing that you can tell all
that just by the sound of it dropping on the counter; I'll take it." The woman opens her purse and sees her wallet drop to the floor.

As she bends down to pick it up she accidentally passes gas. At first she is really embarrassed, but then concludes there is no way he could tell it was her. Being blind, he wouldn't know that she was the only person around.

The man rings up the sale and says, "That'll be $34.50 please." The woman is totally confused by this and says, "Didn't you tell me it was on special for $20.00? How did you get $34.50?" He replies, "Yes Ma'am, the rod and reel is $20.00, but the duck call is $11.00 and the catfish bait is $3.50!"
