Miss Jones, Please Remove Your Bare Breasts From My Hands

That's the punchline of a joke I learned a couple decades ago. See, the boss is cheating on his wife with his secretary, and the wife "interrupts" them when coming to his office unannounced.

The joke is quite a hoot when you're a young teenager.

What, you don't get it? The boss is trying to look all innocent so that he doesn't get in trouble with his wife!

So what does this joke have to do with anything? Well, take a read of this story:

A state legislator surprised a high school class when the computer he was using projected a photo of a nude woman during a lecture on how a bill becomes a law.

State Rep. Matthew Barrett was giving a civics lesson Tuesday when he inserted a data memory stick into the school computer and the projected image of a topless woman appeared instead of the graphics presentation he had downloaded...

He said the school's technology director determined the stick had a directory of nude images in addition to Barrett's presentation on civics lessons.

"I have no idea where these came from," the Democrat said.

Depending on where he was in the presentation the picture may have gone right along with it

(vain laughter in my head)

but in all seriousness this just boggles my mind, first the mistake but then the excuse, if I had not done my home work and tried to pass an excuse that lame past you you probably wouldn't let me get passed the first syllable

Well, at least he had the opportunity to bear his, ahem, breast(s).

Vince, Im sure he would let you explain if you tried to turn in a Playboy instead of Pg 214 1-68 odd.

Come now. I never give assignments that long.

Ahaha. I laughed many times over reading this. Stupid people do stupid things all the time. And yes, you probably never would give an assignment that long. Though Holdhurst MAY turn in a Playboy instead of his assignments on of these days.
