But This Leads to More Questions

Ah, I See

Jokes I Like to Tell

So once there was this woman who got lost in a hot air balloon. It was her first solo flight, and she had been kind of conceited as a hot air balloon student, and so it took her a while to admit to herself that she was lost. But she finally came to that recognition, and because she saw that she was over a lake (but mind you, she didn’t know which lake), she lowered her altitude and was floating about fifty feet above the surface of the lake. She sat there a while until she drifted close to a man who was quietly fishing from his boat.

When she got close enough, she shouted at the fisherman, “Excuse me, sir, can you help me? I promised a friend I would rendezvous with him an hour ago, but I have to admit that I have no idea where I am. Can you tell me where I am?”

The man said “certainly,” consulted his portable GPS. He then shouted back up at her and said, “You’re in a hot air balloon, approximately 50 feet above a ground elevation of 1,436 feet above sea level. You are at 34 degrees, 13.57 minutes north latitude and 92degrees, 39.73 minutes west longitude.”

She rolled her eyes at this, and in something of a huff, said, “You must be a Republican!”

“Well, actually I am,” replies the man. “But how did you know that?”

“It is pretty obvious,” answered the woman in the balloon. “Everything you told me is technically correct. But at the same time, I have no idea what to do with what you told me. And I am still lost. To be blunt, mister, you’re not being very much of a help to me.”

The man smiled at her and responded, “And you must be a Democrat.”

“I am, she said evenly. “But how did you know?”

“Well, that’s pretty obvious also,” says the man. “You don’t know where you are or where you’re going. On top of that, you’ve risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You obviously made a promise that you have no idea how to keep, and now you expect me to solve that problem for you. You’re in exactly the same position that you were in before we met, in other words. But somehow it is now my fault.”

34 degrees, 13.57 minutes north latitude and 92degrees, 39.73 minutes west longitude would put the Democrat in the hot air balloon in Brush Creek, Arkansas, to the southwest of Hot Springs. I don’t think she’d be over water there, rather over hilly forest. The nearest lake, Cox Spring Lake, would be roughly two and half or three miles away.

Sorry, Brush Creek is south east of Hot Springs.. I guess my fear of being Arkancided must be addling my sense of direction.. That dude in the boat better not get too curious about what that lady is doing up there in that balloon.. Who knows what might happen if he learned too much..

Ha, never give your actual coordinates in Arkansas and always watch your 6. Some guy with a clear Clinton connection was found dead there recently. He was like 30 miles from his home, hanging from a tree with a shotgun blast through his body. Not weird at all…and similar to stuff going on there since the mid-80s.

Am I the only one who was curious enough to look up the coordinates to see if there’s really a lake there and where said lake is located? (It is a lake and it’s in southeastern Kansas.)

According to Google Maps, the coordinates are at a spot about 40 miles southwest of Little Rock, AR — no lake:

Hmmm, I used Google maps too. Actually, no I didn’t. It was another site. I trust your work more than mine. Oh well. I liked when I thought it was really over a lake.

Still a good joke, though.

Imagine the reaction if the hairy scary bear had yelled “liberty!” In response the itty-bitty J6 committee might have had to take out their adjectives, like “responsible,” “just,” and “truthful,” and even admit to nouns like “pretense” and “sham.”
