    I had a bunch of Canadian dollars I needed to exchange, so I went to the currency exchange window at the local bank.

    Short line. Just one lady in front of me; an Asian lady who was trying to exchange yen for dollars and she was a little irritated . . .

    She asked the teller, "Why it change?? Yesterday, I get two hunat dolla fo yen. Today I get hunat eighty?? Why it change?"

    The teller shrugged his shoulders and said, "Fluctuations".

    The Asian lady says, "Fluc you white people, too!"

    ...gonna get heat over this one but it was just too funny to pass up!

    As the (probably) only Asian on the board, I give my approval, though I have heard it before.

    Thanks budder.

    I used to work with a guy named Steve Konsakowski who had the world's best, and largest, inventory of Polish jokes and my Uncle Joe loved to tell Irish jokes.

    If we can't laugh at ourselves...

    But Gunns... that really was pretty bad.

    Not the politically incorrect part, as we expected that, but I didn't spit Coke all over my keyboard. As some stories posted here have caused me to do.....!
