Pinnochio had been getting complaints from his girlfriend. “Every time we make love,” she said, “I get splinters.” So Pinocchio went back to his maker, Gipetto the carpenter, for advice. “Sandpaper,” said the carpenter. “That’s what you need.” So Pinocchio took some sheets of sandpaper and went home. A few weeks later the carpenter bumped into Pinocchio again. “How are you getting on with the girls now?” he asked. “Who needs girls?” said Pinocchio.
