A HEARING TEST


Here’s a test to see if you listen well…


1. A bicycle can’t stand on its own because it is two-tired.

2. What’s the definition of a will? (It’s a dead giveaway).

3. In democracy it’s your vote that counts. In feudalism it’s your count that votes.

4. A chicken crossing the road is poultry in motion.

5. A lot of money is tainted. It taint yours and it taint mine.

6. A boiled egg in the morning is hard to beat.

7. The short fortune-teller who escaped from prison was a small medium at large.

8. Once you’ve seen one shopping centre you’ve seen a mall.

9. When an actress saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she’d dye.

10. Bakers trade bread recipes on a knead to know basis.

11. Marathon runners with bad footwear suffer the agony of defeet.


You won’t get the joke unless you listen well and take time to digest the info. It’s not that kids don’t listen, it is rather they don’t listen well. In one ear, out the other. It is same with adults too! Too many things complicate and compete for our ears.
