Hear No Evil, See No Evil...
From Joke of the Day

A new jockey starts work at a new stables and is about to compete in his first race. The owner of the horse comes to him and says he has a great ride and should win:

"All you have to do is this. As you're coming to a fence say, '5 4 3 2 1 JUMP,'"

The race starts and the jockey thinks to himself, "I'm a professional jockey and I'm not gonna be told how to ride a horse," so he says nothing.

The first fence comes and the horse puts his head down and crashes straight through it losing about ten lengths.

The second fence approaches and still, the jockey says nothing. Sure enough, the horse puts his head down and crashes through the fence again.

At this point, he's twenty lengths behind and thinks to himself, "If I don't get a result here it it could be the sack!"

As the third fence comes up, his mind racing, he thinks, "I've nothing to lose. Here goes...'5 4 3 2 1 JUMP!'

And would you believe it? The horse glides over the fence.

He does this at every fence each time making distance up and by the end of the race wins by four lengths.

Back at the weigh in the owner says to the jockey, "Well done lad, you won but what the bloody hell went wrong at the first two fences?"

The jockey, trying to cover up his mistake, replies, "Well I did all that 5 4 3 2 1 jump stuff but he never heard me.

"Well, shucks!" the owner exclaims, "I knew he was blind, but I didn't knew he was deaf as well!"
