"Dear Sir, please find enclosed a pirates outfit. The spotted handkerchief will cover your bald head and with your wooden leg you will be just right as a pirate."
The man is offended that the outfit emphasises his disability, so he writes a letter of complaint. A few weeks pass and he receives another parcel with a new note attached, it read:
"Dear Sir, we are sorry about the previous parcel. Please find enclosed a monks habit - free of charge. The long robe will cover your wooden leg and with your bald head you will really look the part."
The man is now incensed with the costume hire company because they have gone from emphasising his wooden leg to drawing attention to his bald head. He writes another, more strongly worded letter of complaint. A few days later he receives a rather small but heavy parcel from the hire company along with a further note:
"Dear Sir, please find enclosed a tin of Golden Syrup. We suggest you pour the tin of syrup over you bald head and let it harden. Then stick your wooden leg up your arse and go as a toffee apple."
