a funny thing happened . . .

. . . on the way to the capitol.

Okay, so it sounds like it should be a joke . . . and it is kind of funny . . . but it really did happen.

So my missionary boy–who’s serving an LDS mission in Washington DC–emailed and said that last night they were in the Capitol Hill South area and were going to meet someone at the Metro station. They thought the quickest way from point A to point B was to cut through in front of the capitol. He said there were a bunch of cops and they just walked on by the first group of them. But then they got to a second set of cops,
   And one cop said, “Where’s your ID?”
   Zach replies, “You mean my driver’s license?”
   “No, your government ID,”says the cop.
   “You mean my driver’s license?”
   “No, your government ID.”
   Zach’s companion then asks, “Is there something going on here tonight?”
   And the cop replies, “Yeah, the State of the Union Address.
        I don’t know why those guys (other cops) let you across the street.”

Ohhhhh, they thought it was funny. They couldn’t believe they’d gotten through the first check point. However, they were in suits and ties and had badges on, after all. ;)

And on another note, This & That: Love should be up tomorrow!

    That is funny. They looked like they belonged I guess! Hey, were Tareq & Michaele Salahi around too? The couple that crashed the White House state dinner that time?
