Three blondes were all vying for the last available position on the local California police force. The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So you all want to be a cop, eh?" The blondes all nodded. The detective got up, opened a file drawer and pulled out a file folder. Sitting back down, he opened it up and withdrew a photograph, and said, "To be a detective, you have to be able to DETECT. You must be able to notice things such as distinguishing features and oddities such as scars, etc." He walked over to the first blonde and stuck the photo in her face and withdrew it after about 2 seconds. "Now, he said, "Did you notice any distinguishing features about this man?" The blonde immediately said, "Yes, I did. He only has one eye!" The detective shook his head and said, "Of COURSE he only has one eye in this picture! It's a PROFILE of his face! You're dismissed!" The first blonde hung her head and walked out of the office. The detective then turned to the second blonde, stuck the photo in her face for two seconds, pulled it back and said, "What about you? Notice anything unusual or outstanding about this man?" The blonde immediately shot back, "Yes! He only has one ear!" The detective put his head in his hand and exclaimed, "Didn't you hear what I just said to the other lady? This is a PROFILE of the man's face! Of COURSE you can see only one ear!! You're excused, too! The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office. The detective turned his attention to the last blonde and said, "This is probably a waste of time, but....." He flashed the photo in her face for a couple of seconds and withdrew it, saying, "All right. Did YOU notice anything distinguishing or unusual about this man?" The blonde said, "I did. This man wears contact lenses."The detective frowned, took another look at the picture and began checking the information on the man in the picture. He looked at the blond with a puzzled look and asked her how she knew the man wore contacts just by looking at the picture. The blond rolled her eyes and said, "Duh.....with only one eye and one ear, he certainly can't wear glasses."
