“I Don’t Have to Eat All the Egg.”
A lady once wrote a long story. She sent it to a famous editor. After a few weeks the story was returned to her. The lady was angry. She wrote to the editor:
Yesterday you sent back a story of mine. How do you know that the story is not good? You did not read it. Before I sent you the story, I pasted together pages 18, 19 and 20. This was a test to see whether you would read the story. When the story came backyesterday, the pages were still pasted together. Is this the way you read all the stories that are sent to you?"
The editor wrote back: "Dear Madam: At breakfast when I open an egg I don't have to eat all the egg to discover that it is bad.?”
