For Sale: Used Farm Equipment

From an email circulating on the Internet (parody of Craig's List):

Fifty year old manure spreader - $1 ( Washington , D.C. )

Fifty-year old manure spreader. Not sure of brand. Said to have been produced in Kenya . Used for a few years in Indonesia before being smuggled into the US via Hawaii . Of questionable pedigree. Does not appear to have ever been worked very hard. Apparently it was pampered by various people over the years. It doesn't work very often, but when it does it can really spread the manure and sling it for amazing distances. I am hoping to retire this manure spreader next November. But I really don't want it hanging around getting in the way. I would prefer a foreign buyer that is willing to relocate this manure spreader out of the country. I would be willing to trade this manure spreader for a nicely framed copy of the United States Constitution.

Location: Washington , D.C.

Thanks to my brother-in-law for sending this email to me.

If you voted for Barack Obama in 2008 to prove you're not a racist, you need to vote for anyone else in 2012 to prove you're not an idiot.
