These People Need Your Help...
...to buy hats (inside joke - a stuffed marmoset by parcel post to the lucky reader who recognizes the reference). This came in over the transom from a co-worker:
A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington, DC.
Nothing was moving.
Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.
The driver rolls down the window and asks, "What's going on?"
"Terrorists have kidnapped the entire US Congress, and they're asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire.
We are going from car to car, collecting donations."
"How much is everyone giving, on an average?" the driver asks.
[wait for it....]
The man replies, "Roughly a gallon.

That's an old joke from back when Obama first took office and gas prices were about $2 less a gallon.
Nowadays, the punch line is "Roughly a liter."

If it wasn't for old jokes, I wouldn't have no jokes at all :p

Well, it's an old joke, but I'm still not tired of it.
Spd, on selling gasoline by the liter, you should hear Arlo Guthrie if you haven't.
