Happy weekend, everybody! And in the spirit of the holiday, here’s an Easter riddle:
Q: Why didn’t Jesus go to college?
A: He got hung up on the boards.
For our next trick, guess what this photo is:
A beach house on the Redneck Riviera? Check out the snap-on cab accessory on the roof. The socks hanging out to dry on the ladder. The hurricane-proof elevation and custom-made cement risers leading to the front door.
No? How about Ted “Unabomber” Kacynski’s mountain hideout? See the ornamental razor wire and countercultural flag?
Guess again…….perhaps a Cuban medical facility for the common citizenry, not the modern state-of-the-art hospital they show off to credulous journalists praising the national health care system? See the trained physicians inside the doorway? The “doctor” will see you now!
Wrong, wrong, wrong.
A daycare facility in Miami? A toll station connecting New York and north Jersey? A magnet school in Mississippi? Republican National Committee headquarters? Dania Beach City Hall?
Nah. This is an Afghan police station, typical of the most corrupt, distrusted law enforcement agency in the world, representative of the nation where we’re about to deploy about 15,000 troops to win the hearts and minds of the citizens to defeat the influence of the Taliban.
Believe me when I tell you this is actually the most encouraging part of a bigger story, which you can read here.
Happy Easter everybody! Bonus second holiday joke:
Q: Why is Easter the favorite holiday of Alzheimer’s patients?
A: They get to hide their own Easter eggs.
