I Know That It Is Hard To Find... unbiased jury pool, but this is ridicules!

I know that if this was my kitty, I would have placed her in her carrier, brought her papers and showed up for jury duty demanding that she gets her rights as a citizen.  Now that would be great for a laugh.  And speaking of laughs, how about this ditty I got in my e-mail:
Yesterday, I was at PetsMart buying a large bag of Purina dog chow for my loyal pet, Sugar the Wonder Dog. I was in the checkout line when the woman behind me asked if I had a dog.

What did she think I had, an elephant?
So, since I'm retired and have little to do, on impulse I told her, 'No, I don't have a dog. I am starting the Purina Diet again.'

I added that I probably shouldn't, because I ended up in the hospital last time, but that I'd lost 50 pounds before I awakened in an intensive care ward with tubes coming out of most of my orifices and IVs in both arms.

I told her that it was essentially a perfect diet, and that the way it works is to load your pockets with Purina nuggets. Then you simply eat one or two every time you feel hungry. The food is nutritionally complete so it works well, and I was going to try it again.

I have to mention here that practically everyone in line was now enthralled with my story.

Horrified, she asked if I ended up in intensive care because the dog food poisoned me.

I told her, 'No, I stepped off a curb to sniff an Irish Setter's ass and a car hit us both.'

I thought the guy behind her was going to have a heart attack, he was laughing so hard. PetsMart won't let me shop there anymore.

Better watch what you ask retired people. They have all the time in the world to think of crazy things to say!
Have A Good Sabbath!

I often find myself in trouble whenever I chase some Irish tail.
