Pinnochio was receiving complaints from his girlfriend about consumating their passions. "Every time we make love", she said " I get splinters". So he went back to his maker, Gepetto, the carpenter, to ask his advice. "Sandpaper my boy, that's what you need" was the carpenter's response. A couple of weeks later the carpenter met Pinnochio, "How are you getting on with the girls now?" he asked "Who needs girls?" replied Pinnochio.
