Three old ladies were sitting side by side in their retirement
home reminiscing. The first lady recalled shopping at the green
grocers and demonstrated with her hands, the length and
thickness of a cucumber she once could buy for a penny.
The second old lady nodded, adding that onions used to be much
bigger and cheaper also, then demonstrated the size of two big
onions she could buy for a penny a piece.
The third old lady remarked, "I can't hear a word you're saying,
but I remember the guy you're talking about."
