I have a ques­tion. = I have 18 ques­tions. I’ll look into it. = I’ve al­ready for­got­ten about it. I tried my best. = I did the bare min­i­mum. Happy to dis­cuss fur­ther. = Don’t ask me about this again. No wor­ries. = You re­ally messed up this time. Take care. = This is the last you’ll ever hear from me. Cheers! = I have no re­spect for you or my­self! “Bet you’ve got noth­ing like that where you come from.”

“No,” ad­mits the Texan. “But we’ve got plum­bers who could fix it.” Upon en­ter­ing it, he de­clares: “Trump sup­port­ers are ass­holes!”

A sec­ond man gets up from his barstool and yells at the first man from across the bar: “Hey! I take of­fence to that!”

“Are you a Trump sup­porter?” en­quires the first man.

“No,” the sec­ond man replies, “I’m an ass­hole.” Three bur­glars break into a build­ing and are con­fronted by a sol­dier, a cop, and a politi­cian.

The politi­cian tells the sol­dier to kill Bur­glar #1, and they go down, grab­bling. Both die.

The politi­cian then tells the cop to ar­rest Bur­glar #2, and the two beat each other un­con­scious.

The politi­cian then walks up to Bur­glar #3 and says: “I just saved your life, your free­dom, and tripled your share of the loot. I think 20% is a fair cut.”
