"Cause He's Ugly"
I was shopping with a friend at the local supermarket, where he selected:
A half-gallon of 2% milk,
A carton of eggs,
A quart of orange juice,
A head of romaine lettuce,
A 2 lb. can of coffee, and
A 1 lb. package of bacon.
As he was unloading the items on the conveyor belt to check out, a drunk standing behind us watched as he placed the items in front of the cashier.
While the cashier was ringing up the purchases, the drunk calmly stated, 'He must be single'.
I was a bit startled by this proclamation, but I was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since he was indeed single. I looked at the six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about my friend’s selections that could have tipped off the drunk to his marital status.
Curiosity getting the better of me, I said: 'well, you know what, you're absolutely right. But how on earth did you know that?'
The drunk replied, 'Cause He’s ugly'.
