ON THEIR first date, Joe took Sally to the carnival. When he asked her what she wanted to do first, Sally replied: “Get weighed.”

So Joe took her to the man with the scale who guesses people’s weight. He looked at Sally and said: “56kg.” Sally then stepped on the scale and weighed in at 54kg, so she collected a prize.

Next they went on the roller coaster. When the ride was finished, Joe asked Sally what she wanted to do next. “Get weighed,” she said again. Joe thought that was a bit strange since they’d already done that, but he took her back to the man with the scale, who of course guessed Sally’s weight correctly.

Leaving without a prize, they went for a ride on the merry-go-round. After they got off, Joe asked Sally what she wanted to do next. “I want to get weighed!” she insisted.

Joe began to think this girl was quite strange, and decided to end the evening quickly. He took her home, walked her to her front door, gave her a quick handshake and left.

Sally went inside to find her housemate waiting up for her. “How was your evening?” the housemate asked.

“Wousy!” Sally replied.
