Congress Has Been Taken Hostage

I was stuck in traffic outside Washington DC this morning. No-one was moving at all.

Then this guy knocked on my window. I rolled it down and said, “What’s happening?”

He said, “Terrorists have taken the entire US Congress hostage and they say they will douse them in gasoline and set them on fire if they’re not paid a $100 million dollar ransom. We’re going from car to car collecting donations.”

“How much is everyone giving?” I asked.

He said, “About a gallon.”
