So, we're remodeling soon. In order to be able to afford a project like this, we opted to re-finance the house over me taking a side job as a "special needs" stripper. Pasties give me a rash, and on the plus side we got a better rate, our payment is hardly going up, and such and such.
So when you do this, the bank basically sends you a big-assed check which will then serve as your "remodeling fund".
We got this big-assed check last week (and by the way, UPS- leaving a priority envelope on my front stairs where any yahoo could walk buy and steal my new bathroom, new wiring and pretty new other stuff is totally not cool), but I just got around to depositing it today.
So I walk into the bank, fill out the deposit slip, then sidle up to the teller.
Him: "Hi there, what can I do for you today?"
Me: "I'd like to deposit this into my savings, but I can't remember my account number. Could you look it up?"
Him: "Sure, just let me take a look at that..." (pauses.) "So, can I ask why you have such a big check?"
Me: "Oh, yeah. I sold a kidney."
(crickets) (teller makes a frowny face)
Me: "Just kidding! We refinanced, blah, blah, blah..."
He reaches under the desk and pushes the silent alarm. Security comes running and I'm dragged off screaming "I'm kidding! Can't anyone take jokes about selling your organs on the black market anymore???"
O.k, that last part didn't really happen.
But the rest did, and I learned today that no- no indeed- people do not think organ-selling jokes are funny anymore.
How come no one told me?
