Take this magazine, please

Take this magazine, please: After getting 35,000 submissions a month of really bad jokes, the editors of Readers Digest decided it was time to put out an issue on how to be funny.

Which reminds me, I once sent in what I thought was a funny story to Readers Digest. Unfortunately it did not make it into the magazine and I did not get a check for $100.

Here’s the story; see if you don’t agree I was robbed:

Working as a congressional aide, I once called the Department of Transportation seeking information about seat belt testing. “Oh, you need our passive restraint engineer,” said the staffer. “But I’m sorry, he’s tied up right now.”

But seriously, folks.
