Sixteen year old Lisa nervously brought her most recent boyfriend home to meet her parents. Although Lisa was very fond of him, she was nervous about what sort of impression he’d make on her parents. You see, he was full of tattoos and had piercings all over his body.
“Mom,” said Lisa nervously, “I would like you to meet my boyfriend, Spike. Spike, this is my Mom.”
After a few minutes of small talk and pleasantries, Lisa’s Mom called her away to the kitchen and whispered, “Lisa, I don’t like him, he just doesn’t seem very nice!”
“Mom, pa-leeze!” retorted Lisa, “If he’s not a nice guy, how can you explain the forty hours of community service he does each week?”
