Look of Plastic and Feel of Rubber
Published on Thu 07 October 1999
A big-time executive walked into a bar and sat down next to a drunk who was studying, something in his hand. The executive leaned close as the drunk held the object up to the light. "Well, it looks like plastic," the drunk said. Then he rolled it around in his fingers and added, "And it feels like rubber."
Curious, the executive asked, "What do you have there?"
The drunk shook his head, "Damned if I know. It looks like plastic and feels like rubber."
The executive said, "Let me take a look." He examined it, rolled it between his fingers and said, "Yeah, you're right. It does look like plastic and feels like rubber, but I don't know what it is. Where did you get it?"
The drunk replied, "Out of my nose."
