Well Mr. Johnson, we want to thank you for applying to be a U.S. Secret Service agent.

You seem to be just the sort of candidate we look for. Short hair, well-dressed, clean cut, nice smile.

I’m also very impressed by the fact that you talk without movingĀ  your mouth – that’s great for keeping the president’s movements private and secure.

You might be happy to learn we have a great dental plan, in case you want to straighten those teeth a bit, but of course that’s up to you.

So welcome to the Agency! Here’s your gun. Now, could you just turn around for a minute so I can thread your earpiece through your collar, and we’ll take you in to meet the president…

Well, Shra, if we don’t talk about it how can we be sure he’ll actually propose? Not that I am sure where he’d carry the ring to last through the 3000 mile swim and 500 mile walk, but best to give him a heads up, so he can be prepared, don’t you think?

::whispers conspiratorally to M:: If you keep ranting this way, he wont make the swim and walk at all, M! So, shut it till he gets here! *slaps wrist*

PilotMan, you are one to keep their promises and commitments!

Shra, I told you he’d make a good prospect!! Congrats to the two of you!

I promised and committed to what now?

Posted by iflydaplanes | Report as abusive

Oh, so you’re trying to back off now, are you?

Shra, I might have to take it back, he might not be as reliable as we once thought… let him swim and walk a couple of times to test the waters, I say… then we’ll know!

Just what I have been saying, M…..;)
See, I know you men, better than you know yourselves…
