Now Pre­sent­ing: Deaf, Dumb, and Blind

Male of­fice work­er: So, are you look­ing for­ward to the sym­pho­ny this week­end?
Fe­male of­fice work­er (ex­cit­ed­ly): Oh yes! Beethoven’s on­ly opera, Fi­de­lio!
Male of­fice work­er: Have you heard it be­fore?
Fe­male of­fice work­er: No, it’s my first opera. But I’ve been read­ing about it. Beethoven was a ge­nius!
Male of­fice work­er: Yeah. But why do you say that?
Fe­male of­fice work­er: Well, he wrote all that mu­sic, and he was blind!
