Writing about Daniel Edwards’ new piece is not behind the times.
This probably is, but I thought it was quite amusing.
A Louisiana Katrina evacuee walks into the local Texas welfare office for his monthly check. He marches straight up to the counter and says, "Hi. You know, I just HATE coming in here drawing welfare month after month, since I left New Orleans . I'd really much rather have a job".
The Texas social worker behind the counter says, "Your timing is excellent. We just got a job opening from a very wealthy old man who wants a chauffeur-bodyguard for his nymphomaniac daughter. You'll have to drive around in his Mercedes, but he'll supply all of your clothes. Because of the long hours, meals will be provided. You'll be expected to escort her on her overseas holiday trips. You'll have a two-bedroom apartment above the garage. The starting salary is $200,000 a year."
The Louisiana guy says, "You're bullshitting me!"
The Texas social worker replies, "Yeah, well, you started it."
See, I can have a sense of humor that is riddled with poor taste too!
