One day a man went into a shop in Dublin, and asked for a suit of clothes, and asked to fit them on. The shopman said yes, but it was found to be too big. When he told him it was too big the man said "You can pretend it fits you", "All right" said he, and when he was going out the door the man said to him "You didn't pay me" but said he "You can pretend you have it".
