@ For two years I managed a group of musicians who proudly labeled themselves “The loudest rock-and-roll band in LA”. One night, during a particularly rowdy and raucous rehearsal, they took a break. Rubbing one ear the lead singer asked, “Hey, are you guys losing your hearing?” The bass player shrugged and pointed to his forehead in reply and said, “Maybe just a little on top”.
@ My ex-wife was deaf. She left me for a deaf boyfriend. To be honest, I should have seen the signs.
@ A man was walking past a woman who was known to have a poison tongue. As he approached she let loose a volley of profanity. When she took a breath, he nodded and said, “Thank you I am well and how are you today?” She loosed the torrent of abuse again and he looked to the sky and said, “You may be right it could rain later today.” Exasperated, the woman said, “The idiot is deaf, there is no point swearing at the man anyway because he does not get it.” The man just walked on his way.
