A driver was stuck in a traffic jam on the highway outside Washington DC. Nothing was moving. Suddenly, a man knocks on the window.

The driver rolls down the window and asks, “What’s going on?”

“Terrorists have kidnapped Congress, and they’re asking for a $100 million dollar ransom. Otherwise, they’re going to douse them all in gasoline and set them on fire. We’re going from car to car, collecting donations.”

“How much is everyone giving, on average?” the driver asks.

The man replies, “Roughly a gallon.”

This joke has got to be pretty old, but I just read it for the first time today.

The joke usually has the hated political figure of the day, and the alternate punch line is:

"So how much have you collected?"

"Eight gallons"

The sad truth is that I probably *have* heard that joke before, 20 or 30 years ago, and just don't remember.

You don't remember a joke?

Are you seeing a doctor about this?
