Joke told at a meeting last night-- The Golden Rat
Man walks into a store, sees a golden rat, thinks it's cool. The tag says $12. "Is this really $12?" he asks the owner.

"Yes, $12 for the statue, but $500 for the story."

The man sees the sales ploy, ignores it, and says "No story, I just want the rat." So he buys it and leaves the store.

Soon, he hears noises behind him, and he turns around to see a rat following him. Soon, more rats begin following him. He speeds up, so do the rats. More rats come out of the drains, the sewers, the allies, and from everywhere.

The man freaks out and starts to run. Every rat in town is behind him. He runs as fast as he can until he reaches the shoreline, runs out on a pier, and hurls the Golden Rat as far out to see as he can. Every rat in town follows the statue out to see and drowns.

So he goes back to the store. The owner smiles at him and nods knowingly. "Ah, now you want the story, don't you?"

"No," the man replies. "I want a Golden Republican."

2. Another joke
A friend emailed me this one:

As President Bush gets off the helicopter in front of the White House, he is carrying a baby pig under each arm.

The Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes, and says: "Nice pigs, sir."

The President replies: "These are not pigs, these are authentic Texan Razorback Hogs. I got one for Vice-President Cheney, and I got one for Defense Secretary Rumsfeld."

The Marine again snaps to attention, salutes, and says, "Nice trade, sir."
