24 – Job Opening

Jan 12, 2009

The first night of 24 Season 7 went better than expected.  I’m looking forward to tonight’s “surprises”.  In the mean time, here’s an assassin joke that puts it all in perspective.

Job Opening

The FBI had a job opening for an assassin. After all the background checks, interviews and testing were done, there were three finalists; two men and a woman.

For the final test, the FBI agents took one of the men to a large metal door and handed him a gun. "We must know that you will follow your instructions no matter what the circumstances. Inside the room you will find your wife sitting in a chair…….Kill Her!"

The man said, "You can’t be serious. I could never shoot my wife." The agent said, "Then you’re not the right man for this job. Take your wife and go home."

The second man was given the same instructions. he took the gun and went into the room. All was quiet for about 5 minutes. The man came out with tears in his eyes, "I tried, but I can’t kill my wife." The agent said, You don’t have what it takes. Take your wife home."

Finally, it was the woman’s turn. She was given the same instructions – to kill her husband. She took the gun and went into the room. Shots were heard, one after another. They heard screaming, crashing and banging on the walls.

After a few minutes all was quiet. The door opened slowly and there stood the woman, wiping the sweat from her brow. "This gun is loaded with blanks," she said. "I had to beat him to death with the chair."

MORAL: Women are crazy.  Don’t mess with them.

Jack Bauer would be proud.  Don’t underestimate Renee Walker.
