A senior citizen confronts a young man on a bus #6
A young punk gets on the cross-town bus. He has got spiked multi-colored hair that is green, purple and orange.
His clothes are a tattered mix of rags.
His legs are bare, he is in shorts and the legs are covered with odd tatoos. His face and body are riddled with pierced jewelry and his earrings are big, bright feathers.
He sits down in the only vacant seat, directly across from an old man who glares at him for the next 20 minutes....Finally,,,
The punk gets self -conscious and barks at the old man..."What are you looking at you old fart...didn't you ever do anything
wild when you were young?..Without missing a beat..the old man replies: Yeah, back when I was young and in the navy, I got really drunk one night in Singapore, and I had sex with a parrot...I thought maybe you were my son..."
