A wife asks her husband, a software engineer; “Could you please go shopping for me and buy one carton of milk, and if they have eggs, get six!”
A short time later the husband comes back with six cartons of milk.
The wife asks him, “Why the hell did you buy six cartons of milk?”
He replied, “They had eggs.”
Who Is Going to Afghanistan First?
Boudreaux, the smoothest-talking Cajun in the Louisiana National Guard,got called up to active duty. Boudreaux’s first assignment was in a military induction center.
Because he was a good talker, they assigned him the duty of advising new recruits about government benefits, especially the GI insurance to which they were entitled.
The officer in charge soon noticed that Boudreaux was getting a 99% sign-up rate for the more expensive supplemental form of GI insurance.
This was remarkable, because it cost these low-income recruits $30.00 per month for the higher coverage, compared to what the government was already providing at no charge. The officer decided he’d sit in the back of the room at the next briefing and observe Boudreaux’s sales pitch.
Boudreaux stood up before the latest group of inductees and said, “If you has da normal GI insurance an’ you goes to Afghanistan an’ gets youself killed, da government pays you beneficiary $20,000. If you takes out da supplemental insurans, which cost you only t’irty dollars a mons, den da governmen’ gots ta pay you beneficiary $200,000!”
“Now,” Boudreaux concluded, “which bunch you tink dey gonna send ta Afghanistan first ?”
