The Hi-Tech Watch
A man is at Grand Central Station waiting for his train which leaves at 6:00 PM but he has forgotten his watch. So he looks for someone to ask the time. He spots this guy walking past carrying 2 suitcases and sporting this fabulous hi-tech watch, so he asks him for the time.
The guy replies "Sure, which country?"
The fella asks "How many countries have you got?"
, to which the reply is "All the countries in the world!"
"Wow! That's a pretty cool watch you've got there."
"That's nothing. This watch also has a GPS facility, fax, e-mail and can even receive NTSC television channels and display them on its miniature active color pixel LCD screen!"
"Boy, that's incredible. I wish I had a watch like that one . . . You wouldn't consider selling it by any chance?"
"Well, actually the novelty has worn off for me, so for $900, if you want it, it's yours."
The watchless traveller can hardly whip out his check book fast enough, and hands over a check for $900.
The seller takes off the watch and gives it to him.
"Congratulations, here is you new hi-tech watch" and then, handing the 2 suitcases over as well he says, "and here are the batteries."
