Read the Sign

A grocer put up a sign that read: "Eggplants, 25 cents each—three for a dollar." 


All day long, customers came in exclaiming: "Don't be ridiculous! I should get four for a dollar!" Meekly, the grocer agreed and packaged four eggplants. 

The tailor next door had been watching these antics and finally asked the grocer, "Aren't you going to fix the mistake on your sign?"

"What mistake?" the grocer asked. "Before I put up that sign no one ever bought more than one eggplant."
