Вопросы в контексте - Blond Cops - Алеша vs Александр



A Policeman was drilling 3 blondes, who were training to become detectives. To test their skills in recognizing a suspect, he shows the 1st blonde a picture for 5 seconds and then hides it. “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” The first blonde answers “ That's easy, we'll catch him fast because he only has one eye” The policeman says “Well…Uh.. that's because the picture shows his profile” Slightly flustered by this ridiculous response, he flashes the picture for 5 seconds at the second blonde and asked her “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” The second blonde giggles, flips her hair and says “Ha! He'd be easy to catch because he only has one ear!” The policeman angrily responds, “What's the matter with you two? Of course only one eye and ear are showing because it's a picture of his profile! Is that the best answer you can come up with?” Extremely frustrated at this point, he shows the picture to the third blonde and in a very testy voice asks “This is your suspect, how would you recognize him?” He adds quickly “….think hard before giving a stupid answer” The Blonde looks at the picture intently for a moment and says “HMMMM… the suspect is wearing contact lenses.” The policeman is surprised and speechless, because he really doesn't know himself if the suspect wears contacts or not. “Well, that is a good 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 contacts lenses. Good work! How were you able to make such an astute observation?” “That's easy” the blonde replied. “He can't wear glasses because he only has one eye and one ear!”

Вопросы в контексте - Flying First Class - Владимир vs Данил


On a plane bound for New York the flight attendant approached a blonde sitting in the first class section and requested that she move to coach since she did not have a first class ticket. The blonde replied, “I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to New York, and I'm not moving.”
Not wanting to argue with a customer the flight attendant asked the co-pilot to speak with her. He went to talk with the woman asking her to please move out of the first class section.
Again, the blonde replied, “I'm blonde, I'm beautiful, I'm going to New York, and I'm not moving.” The co-pilot returned to the cockpit and asked the captain what he should do.
The captain said, “I'm married to a blonde, and I know how to handle this.” He went to the first class section and whispered in the blonde's ear. She immediately jumped up and ran to the coach section mumbling to herself, “Why didn't anyone just say so.” Surprised, the flight attendant and the co-pilot asked what he said to her that finally convinced her to move from her seat. The pilot replied, “I told her the first class section wasn't going to New York.”
