Volume 7, Issue 9

Somebody has been arrested.

The officer gulped as the carriage driver he had stopped for speeding told him his name. "Uh, I'm sorry, sir, you may go on your way," he stammered. "Please do slow down, though, so as not to endanger others on the streets."

"Officer, do your duty!" came the thunderous reply from the cigar-chewing driver.

Nervously, the officer arrested the driver and impounded the horse and carriage, and took the driver to the station house. There, the driver paid a small fine for speeding. Then Ulysses S. Grant, President of the United States, had to walk back to the White House.

“Why do you do this?” grumbled the surly man in the back seat.

I expected the usual insults or pleading. So the question took me off guard. “What?”

“This.” He lifted his handcuffs.

“That’s simple,” I grinned. “Somebody gets arrested. Nothing new; happens every day. You pay 10% to the bondsman and he posts the other 90%. Then you skip bail. I guess you figure you’d rather lose the money than go to prison. So the bondsman pays me bring you back.”

“Not that,” he growled. “This!”

“Tattooing BOY TOY on your wrists? Just consider it part of the service.”

(AP) Somewheresville, USA. Arrested today was WBFD news director, Kay Hawkin, under allegations of reporting factual news that didn't have a bias. "It's downright cruelty to give the public the news without also giving them their opinion about it. People should not only receive the facts but a framework or perspective about how to view those facts," reported ABC network affliate information disseminator, Monica Newman. Kay Hawkin claimed she was just trying to report the facts. Meanwhile, the inhabitants of Somewheresville writhed in agony, unable to even change the channel. They were barbarically given the burden of thinking for themselves.
