State of the Union, 1/1/13
A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington , DC. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down the window and asks, â€œWhatâ€™s going on?â€
â€œTerrorists have kidnapped Congress, and theyâ€™re asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We are going from car to car, collecting donations.â€
â€œHow much are you willing to give?â€ the driver asks.
The man replies, â€œRoughly a gallon.â€
