Perspectives on a Glass

A glass of water is left on the table. The following observations are made.

Optimist: this glass is half-full.

Pessimist: this glass is half-empty.

Realist: (pointing) this is H20.

Idealist: society should fill this glass.

Robin: holy missing liquid, Batman!

Batman: yes, Robin, it appears some dastardly criminal has made off with most of this refreshing beverage.

The Joker: I poured precious water down the drain. Soon Gotham will be drowning in it.

Announcer: can Batman stop the Joker? What has he got planned? Tune in tomorrow!

Bartender: so that’s where I left the damn glass.
