Today's Laugh

The other day I went downtown to run a few errands. I went into the local coffee shop for a snack. I was only there for about 5 minutes. When I came out, there was this cop writing out a parking ticket.

I said to him, "Come on, man, how about giving a retired person a break?" He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. His insensitivity annoyed me, so I called him a "Nazi." He glared at me and then wrote out another ticket for having worn tires. So I proceeded to call him a "doughnut-eating Gestapo." He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he wrote a third ticket when I called him a "moron in blue." This went on for about 20 minutes. The more I talked back to him, the more tickets he wrote.

Personally, I didn't really care. I came downtown on the bus, and the car that he was putting the tickets on had one of those bumper stickers that read,

Obama in '08.


  1. Oh Susan...THAT was awesome:)

  2. LOL!

    Sometimes when I'm downtown I'll but dimes in meters that are about to expire, but the other I was specifically passed one up that was a minute from expiring because of the Obama stickers. :)

  3. I just realized that this joke was written in first-person. I hope you guys know I wouldn't do this. Even to an Obama supporter. But I think it's a good joke to tell!
