    Exclamation The basement dude

    There once was a stoner dude who was bored as he sat on the sofa watching the world go by. To amuse himself he took a great breath and sang out, "Check! Check! The Check is is in the mail!"
    The city dwellers came running down the stairs to help the dude find the check. But when they arrived at the bottom of the stairs, they found no check. The dude laughed at the sight of their angry faces.
    "Don't cry 'check', stoner dude," said the city dwellers, "when there's no check!" They went grumbling back up the stairs.
    Later, the dude sang out again, "Check! Check! The check is in the mail!" To his naughty delight, he watched the city dwellers run down the stairs to help him find the check.
    When the city dwellers saw no check they sternly said, "Save your frightened song for when there is really something wrong! Don't cry 'check' when there is NO check!"
    But the dude just grinned and watched them go grumbling up the stairs once more.
    Later, he saw a REAL check prowling in the mail. Alarmed, he leaped to his feet and sang out as loudly as he could, "Check! Check!"
    But the city dwellers thought he was trying to fool them again, and so they didn't come.
    At sunset, everyone wondered why the stoner dude hadn't returned to the city with their money. They went down the stairs to find the dude. They found him weeping.
    "There really was a check here! The belongings scattered! I cried out, "Check!" Why didn't you come?"
    An old man tried to comfort the dude as they walked back to the city.
    "We'll help you look for the lost check in the morning," he said, putting his arm around the youth, "Nobody believes a liar...even when he is telling the truth!"

    Not real sure I get the joke, but do like your sig. Little sexist though, isn't it?? Not politically correct in our current, oh so careful, pc environment.

    Oops...was just giving you a hard time..lol. Not serious about the "pc" thing, and told my husband about your sig and he thought it was funny. That pc stuff drives me up the walls sometimes..you know? Half the time when I am talking, I am racking my brain trying to remember the current "pc" term for whatever I am trying to say. IMHO, we've gone way overboard on it.
