Ask A Stupid Question, Get A Stupid Answer

I went to the store the other day to buy a bag of dog food. While in the check out line, a woman behind me asked if I had a dog. Stupid question, I thought. Why else would I be buying dog food?

So I answered her ...

"No, I don't have a dog. I'm starting the dog food diet again. I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time. I lost 50 pounds before I woke up in intensive care with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IV's in both arms." I continued my tale and told her that it was essentially a perfect diet. "All that I did was load my pockets with food nuggets and simply eat one or two every time I felt hungry. The food is nutritionally complete, so it works well. That's why I'm buying the dog food; I'm going to try it again."

Horrified, she then asked if I ended up in the ICU because the dog food poisoned me. I replied, "No, I stepped off the curb to sniff a poodle's ass and a car hit me." That ended the conversation.

Moral of the story: Ask a stupid question, get a stupid answer.
