As you may know, I keep a couple of flyers about guitar lessons on… - Echoes of Flavio's Ghost Dreaming

As you may know, I keep a couple of flyers about guitar lessons on the windows of the car. Every now and then I get stopped by somebody asking me, "How much?" and getting a bit confused when I reply "£34 an hour". Then I point at the flyer, that reads in enormous big fat black letters "GUITAR LESSONS'. They look more confused and I have to tell them I'm offering guitar lessons, not selling the car.

Tonight I had a phone call. "How much the car..?" "Beg your pardon?", "How much you selling the car, mate?" "I'm not selling any car. Are you sure you got the right number?", "But the paper on the window..."

Heh, maybe you should draw a picture of a guitar on the flyer!

Of course, it's very confusing. As you can see, the ad clearly says 'Car for Sale...'

You overestimate the average intelligence; the bottom ten percent are beyond and beneath comprehension and *no* instruction - written, verbal, or reinforced by repeated electrical stimulation - can be guaranteed to have any effect on them.
