I will be busy entertaining our guest from Australia, so I won’t be around much until Monday afternoon or Tuesday. I promise to get to the folks that have participated in our weekly memes. On with the post for today…
As a popular local politician I always try to help out whenever I can. So that’s how it came to be that when a fellow came up to me in a hotel lobby the other day and asked me for a small favor I was more then happy to oblige.
“Hi,” said the fellow, introducing himself as Bob Smith. “I’m having a very important business meeting in a few minutes, and it’s very important that I impress them. If you can just come over during our meeting and say hello I would be forever indebted to you!”
So that’s how a few minutes later, I found myself walking over to the fellow with a big smile on my face, “Hi Bob!” I said.
I barely got the words out of my mouth when Bob looked up with an annoyed expression, “DON’T BOTHER ME NOW CHRIS. CAN’T YOU SEE I’M IN THE MIDDLE OF AN IMPORTANT MEETING?!

Found this video on Facebook (thanks to Steve @ BF Dude), and had to share. This is spot on. It depicts politicians perfectly. Either side of the aisle too, so no pointing any fingers at just one side. This just applies to them all.
At the end of the tax year, the IRS sent an inspector to audit the books of a local hospital. While the agent was checking the books, he turned to the CEO of the hospital and said, “I notice you buy a lot of bandages.” What do you do with the end of the roll when there’s too little left to be of any use?
“Good question,” noted the CEO. “We save them up and send them back to the bandage company, and every once in a while they send us a free roll.”
“Oh,” replied the auditor, somewhat disappointed that his unusual question had a practical answer. But on he went in his obnoxious way, “What about all these plaster purchases? What do you do with what’s left over after setting a cast on a patient?”
“Ah, yes,” replied the CEO, realizing that the inspector was trying to trap him with an unanswerable question. “We save it and send it back to the manufacturer, and every so often they send us a free bag of plaster.”
“I see,” replied the auditor, thinking hard about how he could fluster the know-it-all CEO. “Well, what do you do with all the remains from the circumcision surgeries?”
“Here, too, we do not waste,” answered the CEO. “What we do is save all the little foreskins and send them to the IRS office, and about once a year they send us a complete prick.”
