    Please help me get this joke.

    Hi
    Could you kindly help me what makes this joke funny?

    -Let's go shopping.
    -That's a good idea but I mustn't forget to visit the optician. I think I need glasses.
    -What makes you think so?
    -Well, yesterday I turned the knobs on the oven and an orchestra started playing!

    Thanks a million.
    Being a non-native teacher, I'm so thrilled being in such a superb forum.

    Her eyesight was so bad that she mistook the radio for the oven.

    She is so nearsighted that she thought her radio was her oven.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
