A few weeks ago, I had the absolute pleasure of visiting my local Social Security office. I always enjoy seeing my tax dollars at work, mainly to make sure that they are, in fact, being wasted and I'm happy to report that they are. I had some personal business to tend to that I had been putting off for quite some time and I ended up having to make three separate trips over the span of about two weeks. On my final visit, I couldn't help overhearing a conversation between two of my fellow taxpayers. The topic? Politics....always a crowd favorite. I'm going to do my best to recount the conversation below...
Man: "So who do you think was the worst president?"
Woman: "Probably Clinton. He cheated on his wife."
Man: "Well, that was Hillary's fault. You know she couldn't have been a real lovin' lady."
Woman: "No matter. Obama is the worst. Big time. I heard Congress ain't even gonna let 'em run again."
Man: "What? Why not?"
Woman: "Cause his birth certificate ain't real. He was really born in Africa or somethin'."
Man: "Naw...he was born in Hawaii."
Woman: "Whatever. He still ain't legit. Hawaii didn't even become a state until 1975 or somethin' like that."
Man: "Well, whatever the case may be, he's gotten us in the money pickle we're in right now by messin' up the interest rates. I can't even buy a tv without having to pay 20% interest!"
Woman: "I heard that! I can't even put new siding on my mobile home because everything's so dern expensive now. If I'd known all this was comin', I'd stayed livin' at my momma's."
Man: "I sure hope we get a good feller in office next time to save this broke-down economy."
Woman: "Yeah, me too. I don't even vote anyways. Waste of my time."
Man: "I don't vote either. Haven't in about 20 years."
It was at this moment, I thought, that somewhere in the world Jeff Foxworthy's head was exploding.
