I went to Wal-Mart today, and I was there for literally 5 minutes. When I came out, there was a state trooper writing a parking ticket for being in a handicap spot. So I went up to him and said, “Come on, buddy, how about giving a guy a break?”

He ignored me and continued writing the ticket. So I called him a pencil-necked cop. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for worn tires!

So I then asked him if his psychiatrist makes him lie face down on the couch because he is so ugly. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windshield with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket!

This went on until he had placed 5 tickets on the windshield. 5! The more I insulted him, the more tickets he wrote. I didn’t care. My car was parked around the corner.

Market was a little lower today- more so on the grass than the alfalfa. There was good buyer interest. Grass was good quality and alfalfa was decent.

So I’m at Wal-Mart buying a bag of dog food for my dog. While in the check-out line, the woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Now, why else would I be buying dog food, right? So, on impulse, I told her that no, I didn’t have a dog. I was starting the Dog Food Diet again, even though I probably shouldn’t because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I’d lost 50 pounds before I awakened in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms. I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet and all you do is load your pockets with food nuggets and simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well and I was going to try it again. (I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled by my story.) Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food had poisoned me. I told her no, I stepped off a curb to sniff a poodle’s butt and a car hit me. I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack he was laughing so hard!
