Hilarious Tuesday - Keen Observer?

I grabbed this from a forum and I thought it would be good to share to everyone to kick start the week with a laugh. Read on...

Chief detective Gordon was testing 3 candidates who were training to become detectives.

To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the first candidate John a picture for 5 seconds and then hides it. `This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?'

John answers, `That's easy, we'll catch him fast because he has only one eye!'

Chief says, `Well…uh... that's because the picture I showed is his side profile.'

Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashes the picture for 5 seconds at the second candidate Jim and asks him, `This is your suspect, and how would you recognize him?'

Jim smiles and says, `Ha! He'd be too easy to catch because he only has one ear!'

Chief angrily responds, `What's the matter with you two? Of course only one eye and one ear are showing because it's a picture of his side profile! Is that the best answer you can come up with?'

Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the third candidate Peter and in a very testy voice asks, `This is your suspect, and how would you recognize him?

He quickly adds, `Think hard before giving me a stupid answer.'

Peter looks at the picture closely for a moment and says, `The suspect wears contact lenses.'

The Chief is surprised and speechless because he really doesn't know himself if the suspect wears contacts or not. `Well, that's an interesting answer. Wait here for a few minutes while I check his file and I'll get back to you on that.' He leaves the room and goes to his office, checks the suspect's file in his computer, and comes back with a beaming smile on his face.

`Wow! I can't believe it. It's TRUE! The suspect does in fact wear contact lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?

`That's easy,' Peter replied. `He can't wear regular glasses because he only has one eye and one ear.
