An Old Carpenter Was Blind.
An old carpenter was blind, but he would sit in the pub carving little figures:
If you asked what he was carving he would always tell you the kind of wood before he told you the figure.
He bragged that he could tell any kind of wood by smell.
Everyone tried to stump him, but he always got the right wood.
A strategy was devised by a couple of his pals.
They had an elderly lady lie on the bar.
The elderly guy sniffed, considered, then sniffed some more.
He directed them to flip the wood over so the elderly lady could lie on her stomach, and he smelled once more.
His expression brightened and he said….
“You tried to trick me, this is the sh*thouse door from a tuna boat.”
