A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected a half-gallon of 2% milk, a carton of eggs, a quart of orange juice, a head of romaine lettuce, a 2-pound can of coffee, and a 1-pound package of bacon.

As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, a man standing in line behind her, who was drunk, watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier.

As the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated: "You must be single."

The woman was a bit startled by this. She was equally intrigued by the man's intuition, since she was, indeed, single. She looked at her six items and saw nothing particularly unusual about them that could have tipped off the man to her marital status.

Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, "Well, you know what, you're absolutely correct, but how did you know that?"

"Cause you're ugly," replied the drunk.[88]
