News, but not the serious kind
Guess they’re SERIOUS about no-smoking here!
Kelli, it’s me. Bob. Yeah, we’re still on that vacation you booked for us, but listen, we have a question.
We’re in, uh, Yemen. Just got here, but I’m not sure we’re at the right hotel. Can you go online right quick and tell me what it says about this place?
Right. Anything about swimming pool, or mini-bars, or high-speed wireless or complimentary breakfasts?
No? Well what special features DOES it claim to have?
Fire extinguishers, fire extinguishers, fire extinguishers? That’s all it says?
Look under ice machines, what’s it say? Fire extinguishers, fire extinguishers, fire extinguishers? Well I’ll be!
Yup, Kelli, I think we ARE at the right place. I’m lookin’ at a solid band of fire extinguishers every three inches.
Well, I guess it’s just part of the local color or something.
Kelli, hang on a minute, I’m gonna flick my lighter at this guy and see what he does…
