Black Box

“Why does the piano have half of a man sticking out from it?”   Ralph inquired.

“I have no idea. It’s an old prop used many years ago.”  Harry said.

“Look at this!”  Ralph remarked.


“Here’s a black box inside the piano,” Ralph said as he picked it up and opened it.

“So, what’s inside the box?”  Harry questioned.

“Holy cow!”  Ralph yelled.  “It’s a box full of fingers!”

“Well, now we know why there’s half a body sticking out from the piano!  The poor guy was looking for his fingers,”  Harry laughed.
