Nepotism Some Levity

Just as there are good drunks and bad drunks, there are good hangovers and bad hangovers. Nothing reinforces a good hangover, like the one I’m sure most Slog readers and writers earned last night, than a larf.
So, as a service from Chicago, this timely joke from Neil Steinberg’s column in today’s Sun-Times.
A driver is stuck in a traffic jam on the interstate. Nothing is moving.
Suddenly a man walks over. The driver rolls down his window and asks: “What’s going on?”
“Terrorists down the road have kidnapped George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. They’re asking for a $100 million ransom. Otherwise they’re going to douse them with gasoline and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car, taking up a collection.”
The driver asks, “How much is everyone giving, on average?”
“Most people are giving about a gallon.”
High gas prices be damned.
