A joke from the heartland

This little piece of cheesehead humor was shared with me by a friend in the Midwest:

My New Truck???

I bought a new Chevy Avalanche and returned to the dealer yesterday because I couldn't get the radio to work.

The salesman explained that the radio was voice activated. 'Nelson,' the salesman said to the radio. The radio replied, 'Ricky or Willie?' 'Willie!' he continued and 'On The Road Again 'came from the speakers. Then he said, 'Ray Charles!', and in an instant ' Georgia On My Mind' replaced Willie Nelson.

I drove away happy, and for the next few days, Every time I'd say, 'Beethoven,' I'd get beautiful classical music, and if I said, 'Beatles,' I'd get one of their awesome songs.

Yesterday, some guy ran a red light and nearly creamed my new truck, but I swerved in time to avoid him. I yelled out, 'Asshole!' Immediately the radio responded with,

Ladies and Gentlemen,

The Governor of Wisconsin

A bit corny, but still hilarious. Thanks, Ulysses!

Humor works because there is often pure, unadulterated truth underlying the fun. Hilarious! Sunday at our place: the return of Patrice and Stumpy...
