A couple of Sundays ago “Big Bob Thomas” and I put the top down and headed to a funky bar we like on Singer Island called “Two Drunken Goats.” The reason we like this place is because it’s on the beach and usually has live music.
However, a lot of folks must have had the same idea as we did, ’cause when we got there, the joint was jammed. As luck will have it, two stools at the bar opened up, so we grabbed them and ordered up a couple of Bloody Marys. As we sat there shooting the shit, we soon found out that we were a couple of hours early for the band, so we decided to have one more Mary and move on.
As we were finishing up, I couldn’t help but notice this boisterous black dude wearing a cowboy hat down at the end of the bar who was having a great time. He was laughing and hitting on all the ladies who were nearby and not only was he the only non-white in the whole place he was also the loudest. I couldn’t help but ask Bob how long he thought we’d last if the circumstances were reversed. Bob claimed that my question was politically incorrect so it couldn’t be answered in public.

At 220 mph his car goes airborne, flips over and crashes on top of the retaining wall, rips a hole in the iron fence and explodes as it bounces its way back onto the track. Scott crawls out of it with a bit of a sore ankle. Maybe the NFL should consider racing helmets?
