1. Practice for your jazz quartet

2. You're bald and spilled mustard on your wig

3. A chemical disease has rendered everyone in the world blind

4. You're Jon Hamm. He can do no wrong.

5. You've entered a competition for "World's Coolest Uncle"

6. You're on your way to getting your beeper repaired

7. It's Halloween and all your other costumes got lost in the fire

8. You are the one who knocks

9. You need something that matches with the sunglasses you always wear indoors

10. It's Big Band Night at the retirement community

11. You're just sick of women finding you attractive
