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.
