Title: Nothing but grapes
Post by alien2 on Nov 26th, 2016, 12:09pm
A man enters a store. He only has an empty wallet. Yet he buys an expensive bottle of wine. Can you explain this?

He paid for it via:

a) [hide]Store credit[/hide],
b) [hide]Bartering his wallet[/hide], or
c) [hide]Giving them his credit card details from memory[/hide].

Choice (b) is the expected answer. It also the only answer.

Sounds a lot better than a robber.

I took "He only has an empty wallet" literally.

You're too gullible for this world full of treachery.

Maybe it is quite a large wallet, though; enough to cover all the important bits!

Or maybe his bits are small enough to be covered by a regular wallet..

A bottle of wine isn't much for the last piece of your dignity, though.
Then again, the bottle probably covers a larger area? Depending on the angle..

... and the size (of the bottle, of course).

...And the opacity.

And whether it is empty.

And whether it's cold.
