Today, a couple of Jehovah's Witnesses were handing out comic books in the local plaza. A local John de Arms was attempting to get them to move along as their presence is not all that good for business[PFD]. Well, I wondered up, stopped, coughed & spit and said:
"Damn! That medicinally resistant TB!"
Apparently, their deity has an exemption from protecting them from THAT ONE as they high-tailed it outta there so fast that the draft sucked up the trash.
The John de Arms laughed & said: "If you had medicinally resistant TB, the county board of health [PDF] would have you quarantined!"
"Yep," I said. "I know that and you know that, but THEY didn't know that."
He said: "Praise stupidity!" (To which I said: "Amen!)
Then he asked: "When does that allergenic bronchitis let up?"
My answer: "Even next week, or next month works for me."
Sometimes, it's better to avoid silence.
