It was Tuesday evening and, as always, six blindfolded men got together to play pin the tale on the donkey. Because that's what people who wear blindfolds do. They made the fatal mistake of coming to the gathering already blindfolded. Because of that mistake, they ended up groping a large elephant. Who, in turn, lied to the blindfolded men by telling them he was a snake and they'd better back off.
The blindfolded men didn't have the first clue where you'd pin a tale on a snake, or the sense to remove their blindfolds, so they backed off.
