Funding Communism

As Bradio and I were perusing the soup labels at Macey's today, we ran into a white-haired man. He looked at us for a second and said, "I don't know where I'm going...I'm looking for my childhood bride." We were taken off-guard so we just smiled and nodded, feeling sorry for this senile man.

After we finished shopping, we approached Lanta, our car, to load our groceries into the trunk. Our elderly friend was stuffing several Nesquik chocolate milks into his car right next to ours. I hurriedly tried to think of conversation starters in case we made eye contact.

Then the man muttered under his breath, "Kids these days..." He looked at us. "You know North Korea has the largest army in the world?"

Awkward pause...Then he grumbled something about South Korea.

"Well have a great day!" I gave him a cheerful smile and then got in the car. I had no idea what was going on. Brad figured he was referring to our Hyundai, made by a Korean company. I guess you can't please everyone...
