Ba da bing, ba da boom

February 24, 2013

I had a funny e-mail yesterday from a former workmate who’s been cruising the eastern U.S. coast aboard s/v Far Niente.

At a bar tonight in the Keys I heard a bartender ask a middle aged Hispanic-looking gentleman if he wanted to run a tab. He replied yes.

“What name should I put it under?” she asked.

“Barack Obama.” Then he added, “That way somebody else will pay for it.”

He got high fives from several patrons who overheard the exchange. I will now use that tactic any time someone asks my name.
