We need *some* sort of indication you are trying to be funny.   

Please help

I hear there is a shortage of cardboard boxes in Raleigh as the Dems are packing up.  And rental trucks are getting hard to find.  They're packing up over at the mansion but no word yet if there is to be a yard sale.  Word on the street is that they may have found the missing travel records stuffed up one of the fireplaces.  You never know what you may find when moving out of a place that you have occupied for many long years.
