John sat at a table reading a book. When his intelligent friend Jane came in, he casually adjusted his glasses lenses as they slid down his nose and glanced up at her. Suddenly, she burst out laughing.

John asked, "What is so funny?"

Jane answered, "You remind me of a snake!"

How did John remind Jane of a snake, when to most people John did not look, sound, or seem like a snake?



Answer

Snakes adjust their vision by moving their eyes' lenses forward and backwards rather than bending them.
