A young punker gets on the cross-town bus. He's
got spiked, multicolored hair that's green, purple,
and orange. His clothes are a tattered mix of colorful
leather rags. His legs are bare and he is without
shoes. His entire face and body are riddled with
pierced jewelry, and his earrings are big, bright
He sits down in the only vacant seat,
directly across from an old man who just stares at him
for the next 10 miles.
Finally, the punker gets a little miffed and barks at the old man:
"What is with you? Didn't you ever do anything wild
when you were young?"
Without missing a beat, the old man replies, "I
remember back when I was young and in the Navy I got
really drunk one night in Singapore. Couldn't control
myself. Had sex with a parrot. I was just sitting here
wondering if you were my son."
