My father used to tell this joke:
Guy was walking down the street in the Bronx when a shady character called to him from a doorway.
Shady character: "Pssst, hey pal - want to buy an elephant?"
Guy: "What're you nuts?! I live in a one room 5th floor walk-up; what am I gonna do with an elephant?!"
SC: "Yeah, but it's only $500!"
G: "Maybe you didn't hear me - I've got no use for an elephant!"
SC: "I'll make it $400. You know what an elephant weighs? You realize how little that is per pound?"
G: "You're out of your mind...get lost"
SC: "Buddy, you drive a hard bargain. OK; two elephants for only $150 each!"
G: "Now you're talking!"
Just picked up these shoes --they're unworn-- for a price roughly the equivalent the bargain that two elephants for $300 would be; because they are beautiful and because I can't resist a deal either. But I fear I've also got about as much use for them. Any thoughts as to with what/when/how to wear them?
