So what do you do?

On a flight getting ready to depart for Detroit...

Jack was sitting on the plane when a guy took the seat beside him. The guy was an emotional wreck, pale, hands shaking, moaning in fear. "What's the matter?" Jack asked.

"I've been transferred to Detroit, there's crazy people there. They've got lots of shootings, gangs, race riots, drugs, and the highest crime rate."

Jack replied, "I've lived in Detroit all my life. It's not as bad as the media says. Find a nice home, go to work, mind your own business, enroll your kids in a nice private school. It's as safe a place as anywhere in the world."

The guy relaxed and stopped shaking and said, "Oh, thank you. I've been worried to death. But if you live there and say it's OK, I'll take your word for it. What do you do for a living?"

"Me?" said Jack. "I'm a tail gunner on a Budweiser truck."


  1. Heh. That's good enough to forward.

  2. For Bud? Sierra Nevada I could understand...

  3. My first giggles on this fine Monday! Thanks!!

  4. Hee hee hee. ;-)

  5. Ha ha. Jack Daniel's delivery people must drive a tank.

  6. I love it! Now there's a fun job! ;)

    Wonder if they're hiring?

  7. You know, a city that needs a tail gunner on a BUD truck doesn't exactly speak highly about the citizens living there. A GUINNESS truck, well, maybe!!
