Bio Pumps

I ran into Larry today. It is eight thirty by now, so he's been working for good three or four hours. That's probably the reason why he was enjoying the NY Times with a cup of coffee. I inevitably asked about the news, and he gave one of his most fantastic replies:

L: "Did you know they're going to have Bio-Diesel now?"
E: "No, I didn't."
L: "What are they going to have now? Vegetarian Pumps?"

I started, and couldn't stop, laughing.

L: "Vegan Pumps, perhaps?"
E: "No. They'll have ethical pumps."

And so it goes when there's no limit. Once ethics is all over the place, it just becomes hilarious.
