"Reminiscently comparable to the drunk who was crawling round and round the base of a street lamp one moonless night. A policeman
happened by and watched him for a coupla’ few minutes; finally asked him what he was doing. The drunk replied, 'I'm looking for my
wine bottle, I lost a full bottle of wine'. The policeman queried, 'Are you quite sure you lost it around here - I don't see a sign of any wine
bottle'. The drunk replied, 'Oh no officer, I didn't lose it here - I know that for sure. I heard it fall out of my pocket about forty or fifty
feet from here'. The policeman exclaimed, 'Well then man, you'll never find it here!' The drunk looked up and said 'Yes, I know officer,
but there's no street lamp over there'." (At least, there didn’t use to be?)
