What's in the Jar, Charlie?
2 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A farmer who has a loose wife purchases a jar with some sort of specimen in it. For the first time in his life, people begin to pay attention to him. Up till now they laughed at him. His wife continues to embarrass him. She is cruel and amoral. The interesting thing is that all the different people see something different when they look in the jar. One night, the wife comes home from one of her escapades and threatens to tell his friends that the thing in the jar is fake; that he has been had. This, of course, is just to take any joy he has away from him. The conclusion is interesting. It's just that the whole concept could have been played out better. The story is a bit different and superior to the dramatic episode
