The humorist offered his latest invention in the way of a puzzle to the
assembly of guests in the drawing-room:

"Can you name an animal that has eyes and cannot see; legs and cannot
walk, but can jump as high as the Woolworth Building?"

Everybody racked his brains during a period of deep silence, and racked
in vain. Finally, they gave it up and demanded the solution. The
inventor of the puzzle beamed.

"The answer," he said, "is a wooden horse. It has eyes and cannot see,
and legs and cannot walk."

"Yes," the company agreed. "But how does it jump as high as the
Woolworth Building?"

"The Woolworth Building," the humorist explained, "can't jump."
