Three blondes were all applying for the last available position on the Toronto Police Force.
The detective conducting the interview looked at the three of them and said, "So you all want to be cops, huh?"
The blondes all nodded.
The detective got up, opened a file drawer, and pulled out a folder. Sitting back down, he opened it, pulled out a picture, 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 like scars and so forth."
So saying, he stuck the photo in the face of the first blonde and withdrew it after about two seconds.
"Now," he said, "did you notice any distinguishing features about this man?"
The blonde immediately said, "Yes, I did, he has only one eye!"
The detective shook his head and said, "Of course he has only 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?"
"Yes! He only has one ear!"
The detective put his head in his hands and exclaimed, "Didn't you hear what I just told the other lady? This is a profile of the man's face! Of course you can only see one ear! You're excused too!"
The second blonde sheepishly walked out of the office.
The detective turned his attention to the third and 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 sure did. This man wears contact lenses.
"The detective frowned, took another look at the picture, and began looking at some of the papers in the folder. He looked up at the blonde with a puzzled expression and said, "You're absolutely right! His bio says he wears contacts! How in the world could you tell that by looking at his picture?"
The blonde rolled her eyes and said, "Well, Hellooooooooooooo! With only one eye and one ear, he certainly can't wear glasses."
She got the job and will run for public office as a Republican !!!

she speaks of President Obama taking a pay cut during these time of sequester!
When I started this petition just over a month ago, I wondered (like everyone else) if we could really change anything. However, I think we can safely say our message is getting through!
In fact, just today President Obama announced he is taking a pay cut in solidarity with working families struggling due to Sequester cuts. . . just like we asked.
[Insert look of shock here.]
It is essential we give credit where credit is due, but we must continue to fight to end Sequestration and insist Congress return to respectful, reasoned and rational debate that reflects the real values of the American people.
Will you join me in thanking President Obama & calling on Congress to cancel Sequestration?
It’s pretty amazing to think that in just over a month, we’ve had Congresswoman Duckworth respond to us directly, Congressman Loebsack is watching our work, and now the President of the United States has taken a pay cut, too ! It just shows there is real strength in numbers - 360,000 and counting !
@BarackObama Tx for the pay cut. It's time for @SenatorReid @MitchMcConnell @johnboehner & @NancyPelosi to end #Sequestration ! @MissWrite
Thank President Obama for taking a pay cut & Call on Congress to cancel Sequestration! http://bit.ly/XYykIu
