Salesman: This is the wall of impenetrability.

Customer: I'm sorry, what did you say this was?

S: The wall of impenetrability.

C: I see. Why is it so small?

S: Sir, if it was any larger a person would be able to penetrate it.

C: Yes, but with this all I have to do is walk around it. See?

S: I'm afraid you fail to grasp just what the whole wall is about. The idea is that it's impenetrable. It cannot be gone through.

C: So? Who cares? When you take two steps you're past it anyway. I mean, only an idiot would fail to notice how much easier it would be just to walk around it.

S: Nevertheless, it's our most popular item. Any questions? Now over here........

C: A mirror.

S: As I was about to say, this is what we in the industry call a perfectly reflective surface.

C: A mirror.

S: It's not a mirror, it's a perfectly reflective surface.

C: How can you say this is different than any other mirror?

S: This is perfect.

C: Perfect.

S: Yes.

C: Alright, what's this?

S: It's a chair, sir.

C: Oh?

S: I wouldn't lie to you.

C: I never once thought that you would.
