    A champion jockey is about to enter an important race on a new horse. The
    horse's trainer meets him before the race and says, "All you have to
    remember with this horse is that every time you approach a jump, you have to
    shout, "ALLLLEEE OOOP!" really loudly in the horse's ear. Providing you do
    that, you'll be fine".

    The jockey thinks the trainer is mad but promises to shout the command. The
    race begins and they approach the first hurdle. The jockey ignores the
    trainer's ridiculous advice and the horse crashes straight through the
    centre of the jump.

    They carry on and approach the second hurdle. The jockey, somewhat
    embarrassed, whispers "Aleeee ooop" in the horse's ear. The same thing
    happens -- the horse crashes straight through the centre of the jump.

    At the third hurdle, the jockey thinks, "It's no good, I'll have to do it"
    and yells, "ALLLEEE OOOP!" really loudly. Sure enough, the horse sails over
    the jump with no problems. This continues for the rest of the race, but due
    to the earlier problems the horse only finishes third. The trainer is fuming
    and asks the jockey what went wrong. The jockey replies, "Nothing is wrong
    with me -- it's this bloody horse. What is he -- deaf or something?"

    The trainer replies, "Deaf?? DEAF?? He's not deaf-he's BLIND!"
