Congress taken hostage... ransom demanded

  1. A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the beltway outside Washington D.C. Nothing was moving.

    Suddenly a man knocks on the window. The driver rolls down the window and asks " What's going on?"

    "Terrorists have kidnapped Congress, and they're asking for a $100 million dollar ransom.

    Otherwise they are going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire and we are going from car to car collecting donations."

    "How much is everyone giving on average?" the driver asks.

    "Roughly a gallon"

    If only it were true.

    I'd donate - several gallons.

    And matches to boot.
