Polish Eye Exam!

A man from Poland goes to the optometrist who
shows the Pole a card with the letters,
C Z W X N Q S T A C Z Y.
.
"Can you read this?" the optometrist asks.
.
"Read it?" the Pole replies, "not only can I read it
but I know that guy!"
.
=============================
.
An old lady, who is almost totally blind, was waiting
to cross a major intersection.
.
She stood patiently at the curb, too proud to ask
someone to take her across, yet too afraid to
attempt the journey by herself.  She hoped
someone would notice the folded white cane in
her hand.
.
Finally, a gentleman touched her hand and asked
if she'd mind him taking her arm to cross the street.
.
At the other side, the gentleman sighed with relief
and said: "Thank you very much, Miss.
I'm blind and am grateful for your assistance."
.
=============================
.
The teacher asked, "What is actually used as a conductor
of electricity?
.
Little Johnny?" Little Johnny stammered, "Why...er?"
.
The teacher smiled and said, "Wire is right. Very good little
Johnny.  Now tell me, what is the unit of electrical power?"
.
Little Johnny asked, "The what?"

 

His teacher was very pleased, saying, "That's absolutely correct----- the watt.
.
Now, class, you should all take the time to study as diligently
as Little Johnny does."
