50. The original post was a train wreck..
Edited on Mon Feb-23-04 10:43 AM by YNGW
... while trying to make a joke about a train wreck which is just a subset of an even larger train wreck.

What a train wreck!

There's a story about a guy who got hired at a railway station and whose job it was to switch the lines. After going over how it worked, his supervisor asked him, "Now if you got a train going West on Line 'A' and another train going East on Line 'A', and they're heading right at each other going 80 mph, what do you do?" The new hire said "I'm gonna yell "R.C." The supervisor goes "I don't think you understand. Let me say it again. Now if you got a train going West on Line 'A' and another train going East on Line 'A', and they're heading right at each other going 80 mph, what do you do?" The new hire says again "I'm, gonna yell R.C." The supervisor goes "No, that's not what you would do. But let me ask you, why would you yell 'R.C.?'" The new hire says "Oh, I'd yell R.C. I'd yell R.C. just as loud as I could yell it. You see, my friend R.C. ain't never seen a train wreck that bad."
