Premte Peeves

Quote of the day: “I won’t be mowing the lawn every four-five days this summer,” our postmaster told me when I said I needed to get out on the lawn. “I can’t afford the gas.”

  1. I mowed my grass today with my cheap electric mower and 100 foot extension cord. After I finished I took it across the street and mowed the negro guy’s yard who is on Welfare because he injured himself playing softball and can hardly walk. He’s about 65 and has some Social Security from what he earned before he went to prison.

    Anyway, I wanted to sweep up, so I asked for a broom. He brought me two, a good one and a bad one. The difference was that the good one had straw on the end of the handle.

    He said, “It’s tur’ble being po’.”

    I said, “Lawzy lawzy,” and went home.
