"Joe's handwriting is very hard to read..." Photo by Stig Andersen

The setting must be a group of people who are saying good bye to someone, a farewell speech. For our purposes, we'll pretend that we're saying bye to a man named Joe.

The speaker gets in front of a group of people and pulls out a piece of paper. He starts reading from the paper, talking about how great Joe is.

"Well, I can tell you that Joe was the greatest human being I have ever met. Quite honestly he was the most sensitive, loving, caring, compassionate, kind, sweet, and..."

At this point the speaker seems to be a little confused as he is trying to make out what's writeen. Finally he says seriously "...ah folks, I can't read this you know, Joe's handwriting is very hard to read..."

After a pause the speaker figures it out. "Oh, it's humble!"
