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!
