Oh, This is GOOD
From the comments of Curmudgeonly and Skeptical comes this jewel:
Back in December of 1999, one of my Left Wing co-workers was telling me about her Y2K preparations, which came to several thousand dollars. “Oh, we’ve just about got everything, now. Our seed corn arrived last week and we have it sealed in air-tight containers…” (presumeably we were doomed to return to pre-industrial revolution agraria)
When she asked me what I stocked for Y2K, I just smiled and said, “5,000 rounds of .223 NATO”. I smiled and asked, “Now, where did you say you live?”
I don’t think that she knew I was joking.
