    Default a joke for the weekend

    A man got pulled over by a cop because he was weaving in and out of the lanes. The cop got out of his car and asked the driver to blow in a breath-analyzer tube to check his alcohol level.
    "Oh, no," the driver said. "I can't do that. If I do that, I'll have an asthma attack and die."
    "OK," said the officer, "let's go down to the station and you can pee in a cup to check your alcohol level."
    "Oh, no, I can't do that. I'm a diabetic and if I pee my blood sugar level will go down so low that I might die."
    "Fine then. Let's go to the station and take a blood test to check your alcohol level."
    "Oh, no, I can't do that. I'm a hemophiliac and I'll never stop bleeding if you draw my blood.
    "All right then, just step outside your car and walk this white line for me."
    "Oh, no, I can't do that."
    "Why not?"
    "Because I'm drunk."
    Realmente, el destino del mundo depende, en primer lugar, de los estadistas y, en segundo lugar, de los intérpretes.

    Default Alcohol levels

    Yesterday my father took me home and the police stopped us. The cop asked my father if he could measure his alcohol level.

    My father, very quietly answered: "I'm sorry, I cannot help you, I don't drink".

    To me, the situation was terribly funny.
