    #7 with a dose of #3 for added entertainment: The outfit I work for is headquartered in a small town in a southern state. Some years back, the county economic development board decided they needed to go to Europe to promote economic opportunity in the county. As luck would have it, they ended up in Paris on a Saturday and hired an escort to show them the sights. But, as captains of industry, one escort would not suffice, each had to have his own “personal” escort, and by a stroke of luck, or perhaps good planning, these were all very attractive young ladies much younger than the old guys. So, they’re all out to dinner after a hard day of “escorting” when one of them noticed a table full of old biddies from the hometown Lawn and Garden Club giving them the stink-eye from across the room. Ooopsie!

    When they got off the plane in Jackson, they were all served with papers by their wives’ divorce attorneys. True story.
