Shannon:/fontfamily> Hello, KCUP radio. Shannon O’Neill speaking.
Carl: Is this Shannon O’Neill from KCUP radio?
Shannon: Carl! Carl Estrada! Are you okay?
Carl: Never been better! I’m spending my children’s inheritance!
Viola: Just like his president!
Shannon: Who’s this? Viola?
Viola: That’s right. I’m on the other line. Shannon, will you talk some sense into my husband?
Carl: Not now, Viola. I’m trying to drive this big motor home. I don’t have time for sense!
Viola: Just like your president again.
Shannon: Carl, last I heard you were getting pulled over by a cop who was pointing his gun at you and telling you to get out of your motor home with your hands up.
Carl: Oh, that was a big mistake. He thought I was a terrorist.
Shannon: A terrorist?
Carl: That’s right. He saw my sixteen American flags waving from the roof of my motor home. He saw my bumper stickers that said, “Support the Troops! Support My President!” and “These Colors Don’t Run!” He saw my Hummer hitched to the back. So he concluded I was a terrorist. It was an honest mistake.
Shannon: Carl, how would those things make you a terrorist?
Carl: Shannon, use your brain! If you were a terrorist, what kind of disguise would you use? This motor home would be the perfect cover!
Viola: With that kind of logic, how can we possibly lose the war on terror?
Carl: That’s right! Think of all the explosives a terrorist could hide in a motor home!
Shannon: Carl, when will you be getting home?
Carl: Pretty soon. My credit card’s nearly tapped out.
Viola: Just like your president again. Your credit card wouldn’t be tapped out if you had bought that Prius hybrid I wanted instead of that stupid Hummer!
Carl: Stupid? Viola, I’ll have you know that’s the same model Hummer that hundreds of our brave young men and women have gotten blown up in over in Iraq!
Shannon: Carl, Viola, I think. . . .
Viola: Maybe your president should have sent the troops to Iraq in Priuses! At least they’d get better mileage while they’re getting blown up!
Carl: That’s blasphemy! Viola, I’ll have you know, My President. . . .

Shannon: He’s Carl Estrada and that’s his point./fontfamily>
