An elderly 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,” the elderly man says.

“If I take two aspirin, I’ll stop winking!”

“Really? Great! Show me now!”

So the applicant reaches into his jacket pocket and begins pulling out all sorts of c0ndoms: red c0ndoms, blue c0ndoms, ribbed c0ndoms, flavoured c0ndoms; 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 c0ndoms?”

“Oh, that,” he sighed.

“Have you ever walked into a chemist, winking, and asked for aspirin?”
