An Incident in the Beltway

From L. Neil Smith:

A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington, D.C. Nothing was moving. Suddenly a man knocked on the window.

The driver rolled down the window and asked, “What’s going on?”

“Terrorists have kidnapped the entire U.S. Congress, and they’re asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they’re going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car, collecting donations.”

“How much is everyone giving, on an average?” the driver asked.

The man replied, “About a gallon.”

  1. It's strange that jokes like this are acceptable; but changing "Congress" to "the White House" (under any administration) will get you two suits on your front porch.

    Either way, I'll pledge one.
