The holidays are coming up. Be on the look out for a fake letter from the view point of any character in the following joke,
especially with college kids coming home for Thanksgiving and
winter break. The joke is in post 2.

This is the joke:

In the locker room at the gym, a cell phone rang. A middle-aged man answered it.
"Honey, I'm so glad I caught you," yelled a woman's
voice through the speaker. "Josh just brought home his paperwork for his senior trip. It's a trip to
Tokyo."
"Good, said the man. "Send him."
"It's expensive!" she replied.
"Send him", repeated the man.
"It's $5,000--and he'll have to buy his own passport and traveler's checks," she warned.
"Send him" affirmed the man.
"Okay," she said, "I guess he'll have to wait to buy his car then.."
"He can have the car, too," said the man, in a matter-of-fact tone.
"Are you sure?" she squeaked, "You want him to have the trip and the car?"
"Yes," stated the man. "Send him. And give him his car."
"Well, okay, I'll fill out the paperwork," she answered. "He'll sure be happy about this."
"No problem," said the man. He closed the phone.

Several other men looked at him with surprised faces. "By the way," the man said, "Does anyone
know whose phone this is?"

(Mark my words; someone will make a fake letter to an advice column out of this joke.)
