Bert's Joke of The Month

A Polish immigrant went to the DMV to apply for a new Drivers License.
First, of course, he was asked to take an eye sight test.
An Optician showed him a card with the following letters :
"C Z W I X N O S T S K I"
"Can you read this?" The Optician asked.
"Read it?" The Polish guy replied.  "I know the guy!".
