Sink or Swim..............................scribbles and bits #95

The Human Condition

     Two road hogs were grazing along side highway 87 on a peaceful day.  One had just hit it big when he found half a tossed Big Max, barely a day old. The other hog had made the big mistake of gorging down one of those Wendy’s veggie burgers and was now dealing with the trots. As they made their way north, they suddenly came to some poor guy trapped in a sinkhole full of water.

     “You need help, buddy?” asked one of the concerned hog.

     “Nope,” the man replied.

     “How come you’re in that sinkhole?” asked the other hog.

     “Fell in while I was jogging to Jersey.”

     “What are you going to do now?” 

     “Going to swim to Jersey.”

     “In a sinkhole?”

     “Yep.”

     “All the way to Jersey?”

     “Sink or swim,” replied the sinkhole swimmer.”

     “You bump your head?”

     “Nope.”

     “Then how come you acting like some kind of stoned salmon?”

     “I’m just swimming to Jersey, that’s all,” the man said as he changed from freestyle to the breaststroke.

     “What’s ya going to do once you reach the ‘turnpike’? asked one of the hogs.

     “Guess I’ll just swim in the car-pool lane.”


     I was going to write some type of perspective on the obstacles and social barriers we encounter in life and how we endeavor to overcome them. But, then I thought, ‘screw it’ and decided to write something funny that made more sense that the human condition....Charlie

    I particularly like the road hog with the trots. Really cute. Carpool lane! Ha! Wish I’d thought of that.

        Yup – that’s how I get my inspirations! My head is getting a little lumpy, though.
