This Is Katy’s Joke Not Mine and She is an Irish Kennedy Democrat so Don’t Go Blamin’ Me
You are driving down the road in your car on a wild, stormy night, when you pass by a bus stop and you see three people waiting for the bus:
1. An old lady who looks as if she is about to die.
2. An old friend who once saved your life.
3. The perfect partner you have been dreaming about.
Which one would you choose to offer a ride to, knowing that there could only be one passenger in your car? Think before you continue reading.
This is a moral/ethical dilemma that was once actually used as part of a job application. You could pick up the old lady, because she is going to die, and thus you should save her first. Or you could take the old friend because he once saved your life, and this would be the perfect chance to pay him back. However, you may never be able to find your perfect mate again.
YOU WON’T BELIEVE THIS………………….
The candidate who was hired (out of 200 applicants) had no trouble coming up with his answer. He simply answered: ‘I would give the car keys to my old friend and let him take the lady to the hospital. I would stay behind and wait for the bus with the partner of my dreams.’
Sometimes, we gain more if we are able to give up our stubborn thought limitations.
Never forget to ‘Think Outside of the Box.’
HOWEVER…., The correct answer is to run the old lady over and put her out of her misery because Obama’s health care won’t pay for her hospital visit anyway, have sex with the perfect partner on the hood of the car, then drive off with the old friend for a few beers.
God, I just love happy endings!
Some of You Will Recognize this Name Ernie Harwell
Ernie Harwell passed away last night at the age of 92. He was the announcer for the Detroit Tigers baseball team for over 40 years. If you are a Michigander at heart, you know what a sad day this is for the state and for baseball. As Gov Granholm tweeted last night:
“We’ll miss you Ernie Harwell. You’ll forever be the voice of summer”
For some reason, I just can’t stop crying this morning. A part of my life has passed and it hurts to lose a gentle and kind legend.
