    When you steal a joke, it’s good to steal from the best. Very well done. (Was the man named Hu, and did he play baseball?)

    Yippee, I get to be the first one to ask:

    Who’s on first? Guess Who?

    Who’s on second? Must be Canned Heat; they beat the rap.

    This reminds me of a headline I saw once, back in the early 1970’s. It said “Record Price Increase” and I though, uh-oh, another round of uncontrolled inflation, etc. It turned out that the price of records was going up.

    Heard another variation on that recently, based on all the passwords we need today.

    “So what is the password for the office wi fi?”

    “I can’t tell you.”

    And I’m sure you can see where it goes from there.
