A Good Joke

So a plumber an electrician and a tax consultant walk into a bar
The bar tender says what’ll you have
The plumber says I’ll have inner peace please
The electrician says mmm that sounds good I’ll have what she’s having
And the tax consultant says it’s been a tough day
I’ll have a martini

The plumber and the electrician both wear work boots
But the tax consultant has stilettos
My shoes are killing me she tells the bartender
Well, says the bartender that’s why I wear flats
No one ever sees my feet behind this bar

All the while an armed drone is approaching

The electrician turns to the plumber and says
I’m not sure I like this inner peace
I know says the plumber
it takes some getting used to

The tax consultant downs her martini and says I wish I could wear flats
The bartender says well why don’t you
You know how it is says the tax consultant
yea says the bartender

All the while a truck full of misogynists is approaching*

Inner peace says the plumber sympathetically can feel a bit like ignorance
Like you’ve lost touch with how much everything really sucks emotes the electrician

Hit me again says the tax consultant

All the while a bill to privatize water is approaching

The bar tender opens a new jar of olives and thinks about stilettos
No one ever sees my feet behind this bar

Inner peace begins to take hold
It’s not like ignorance at all says the electrician
Does any one know a good joke says the tax consultant
The plumber knows it isn’t anything like ignorance
That was just her way to empathize

The death of democracy is approaching

The tax consultant is on her third martini

The bar tender is thinking I wouldn’t even mind if my feet were killing me
The plumber and the electrician hold all that approaches between them
Cat’s cradle*

The plumber visualizes pipes
The electrician visualizes wires
The tax consultant is almost shouting
Doesn’t anybody know a good joke

I’m getting those stilettos the bartender decides
