A joke making the rounds in SE Michigan

H/T SayAnythingBlog.

There was a big traffic jam in central Detroit, and a motorist opened his window and asked what was going on. A police officer informed him that former Mayor Kilpatrick had been kidnapped by terrorists, and if they didn't get $10 million, they'd soak him in gasoline and set him on fire. "I'm taking donations," said the officer.

"Oh my gosh!" said the driver. "What's the average donation? I'd love to help!"

"About a gallon," replied the officer.

That is literally what came out my facial orifices when I read your post.

Bill me for the paper towels you needed to wipe the coffee from your computer screen. (I'll bill the guys that told me the joke, too)

Thankfully, the coffee was long done by then, so it was merely a sonic emanation, not a particulate one. But thanks for the offer, anyway.

Mayor Kilpatrick? If it was Matt Millen, it'd be a true story!

Or possibly Bill Ford. You know how you can keep Lions out of your backyard, right?

Put up goalposts.
