Witty Wednesday # 8 Budweiser truck


Jack was sitting on the plane when a guy took the seat beside
him. The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking,
moaning in fear. "What's the matter?" Jack asked.
"I've been transferred to New Orleans. There's crazy
people there. They've got lots of shootings, gangs, race
riots, drugs, poor public schools and the highest crime
rate."
Jack replied, "I've lived in New Orleans all my life. It's
not as bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to
work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in a nice
private school. It's as safe a place as anywhere in the
world."
The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh, thank
you. I've been worried to death. But if you live there
and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it. What do
ou do for a living?"
"Me?" asked Jack. "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."


Hope this gives you a laugh and no offence intended to anyone living in New Orleans.

LOL, cute.

I don't think I'd visit there anytime soon. It was shocking to learn how things are down there.

What the heck is a tail gunner?


New Orleans isn't that bad. I love it there. It's a shame how Katrina wreaked so much devastation...but I'd still go back if I ever get the chance. There are some good people there, that's for sure.
