A man was getting a haircut prior to a trip to Rome. He mentioned the trip to the barber who responded, “Rome? Why would anyone want to go there? It’s crowded, dirty and full of Italians. You’re crazy to go to Rome. So, how are you getting there?”

“We’re taking TWA,” was the reply. “We got a great rate!”

“TWA?” exclaimed the barber. “That’s a terrible airline. Their planes are old, their flight attendants are rude, and they’re always late. So, where are you staying in Rome?”

“We’ll be at the downtown International Marriott.”

“That dump! That’s the worst hotel in the city. The rooms are small, the service is surly and they’re overpriced. So, whatcha doing when you get there?”

“We’re going to go to see the Vatican and we hope to see the Pope.”

“That’s rich,” laughed the barber. “You and a million other people trying to see him. He’ll look the size of an ant. Boy, good luck on this lousy trip of yours. You’re going to need it.”

A month later, the man again came in for his regular haircut. The barber asked him about his trip to Rome.

“It was wonderful,” explained the man, “not only were we on time in one of TWA’s brand new planes, but it was overbooked and they bumped us up to first class. The food and wine were wonderful, and I had a beautiful 28 year old stewardess who waited on me hand and foot. And the hotel – it was great! They’d just finished a $25 million remodeling job and now it’s the finest hotel in the city. They, too, were overbooked, so they apologized and gave us the presidential suite at no extra charge!”

“Well,” muttered the barber, “I know you didn’t get to see the Pope.”

“Actually, we were quite lucky, for as we toured the Vatican, a Swiss Guard tapped me on the shoulder and explained that the Pope likes to personally meet some of the visitors, and if I’d be so kind as to step into his private room and wait, the pope would personally greet me. Sure enough, five minutes later the Pope walked through the door and shook my hand! I knelt down and he spoke to me.”

“Really?” asked the Barber. “What’d he say?”

“He said, ‘Where’d you get the lousy haircut?'”


For a friend…

Zombie Apocalypse-The Plan 3

November 18, 2010

You and your team find yourselves outside of the sporting goods store. Since the tank to the Chevy was empty, you’ve arrived on foot. You’re located near the front, watching as zombies shuffle by the front door (4 of them). Through the barred, plate glass window, you can see several more shuffling around inside. Bars cover the window on the door as well. You look across the street to the grocery store. A large window has been broken and zombies wander in and out, although it doesn’t look particularly crowded. You decide to move around to the back of the sporting goods store and see a back door in a small fenced off area (20×30). The door is solid, no windows. What are your next 5 steps? Continued from The Plan 1 and The Plan 2.
