Father/Daughter Talk

This one's actually pretty good, and if anyone has anything to argue/add, I'd love to hear it!

Father/Daughter Talk

A young woman was about to finish her first year of college. Like so many others her age, she considered herself to be a very liberal Democrat, and among other liberal ideals, was very much in favor of higher taxes to support more government programs, in other words redistribution of wealth.

She was deeply ashamed that her father was a rather staunch Republican, a feeling she openly expressed. Based on the lectures that she had participated in, and the occasional chat with a professor, she felt that her father had for years harbored an evil, selfish desire to keep what he thought should be his.

One day she was challenging her father on his opposition to higher taxes on the rich and the need for more government programs. The self-professed objectivity proclaimed by her professors had to be the truth and she indicated so to her father. He responded by asking how she was doing in school.

Taken aback, she answered rather haughtily that she had a 4.0 GPA, and let him know that it was tough to maintain, insisting that she was taking a very difficult course load and was constantly studying, which left her no time to go out and party like other people she knew. She didn't even have time for a boyfriend, and didn't really have many college friends because she spent all her time studying.

Her father listened and then asked, 'How is your friend Audrey doing?'

She replied, 'Audrey is barely getting by. All she takes are easy classes, she never studies, and she barely has a 2.0 GPA. She is so popular on campus; college for her is a blast. She's always invited to all the parties and lots of times she doesn't even show up for classes because she's too hung over.

Her father asked, 'Why don't you go to the Dean's office and ask him to deduct 1.0 off your GPA and give it to your friend who only has a 2.0. That way you will both have a 3.0 GPA and certainly that would be a fair and equal distribution of GPA.'

The daughter, visibly shocked by her father's suggestion, angrily fired back, 'That's a crazy idea, how would that be fair! I've worked really hard for my grades! I've invested a lot of time, and a lot of hard work! Audrey has done next to nothing toward her degree. She played while I worked my tail off!'

The father slowly smiled, winked and said gently, 'Welcome to the Republican party.'

I was expecting something more like "Here's my shotgun, girl. Go get you some."

I just realized I've never met anyone with a shotgun. Growing up, the men I met always had exactly three guns in their home if they DIDN'T hunt deer: a BB gun for their boy, a .22 for ??? shooting cans???, and a revolver of some sort.

If they hunted deer, then they'd have 2-3 additional ones.

Disclaimer: the obligatory PVC potato cannon does not count as a weapon. It takes too damn long to load, and takes too much hairspray.

Those also take far too long to load, but they're a hell of a lot more fun. I think it'd be awesome if we could solve all world problems in one of three ways:

1. MMA/BJJ matches
2. Watergun/Paintball matches
3. Chess/Shogi/Xianggi/Janggi.

So you get to pick: #1 for strength and physical skill/prowess, #2 for dexterity and agility, and #3 for intelligence and foresight.

While everybody is discussing which to do, I hit them in the head with a shovel, take the money and women and enslave the children. Men and elderly are left for the starving dogs.

A shovel, eh? I'll have to remember to bring my hockey mask, then.
