Some Levity

posted by on November 8 at 10:26 AM

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.

My head hurts, but I still came to work with a smile on my face today!

Best. Hangover. Ever.

Excellent. I had two of the Stranger Specials - but spent a lot of time over at the Sheraton parties, before coming back around midnight.
